Pioneer Fall Festival

The Glengarry Pioneer Museum in Dunvegan hosted its annual Harvest Fall Festival on Sunday. It's a pile of fun! There are antique threshing machines...


Folks demonstrating spinning and weaving...


...and old fashioned games for kids like the classic sack race.


At the petting zoo, a turtle goes horseback riding...


...and a good dog gets a hug.


There's a terrific horse parade through the streets of Dunvegan.


The horses and buggies come in all shapes and sizes.


A few anxious pioneer gals wait to see if their names are called in the best dressed pioneer woman contest.


Judging that was a tough call...


Here's Bill announcing the winner of the best dressed male pioneer. Our own Hugh P. won the honours.


At the end of the day, even a goat needs something to eat at the snack bar.

Why, it's all so warm n' fuzzy where you live - just like a Trisha Romance painting.

What a great bunch of volunteer out in your neck of the woods to put together such a fun day! Thanks for sharing the pics. I wasn't able to get out - maybe next year.
