Bountiful Summerfest 2013

Links: Friday My Town Shoot out

Front yard and lovely white plastic fencing

Bountiful Rec Center with a ship slide for the kids beyond the fence.

Soap suds to play with (these two are mine)

Art work on canvas (these two are mine)

Dance Troupe from Taiwan 


Dancers from Chili

Can you image dancing with wool hats, long sleeves and wool sox in 95 degree weather?

Bubble machine

Can you see the bubbles?

1. Each August Summerfest is held at the Bountiful Park and dancers from all over the world come to dance for us.  This year Taiwan, Chili, Netherlands and Trinidad came with multiple dances and costume changes. 

2. It was as much fun for my grandkids as us because they had lots of bubbles, suds, games, lawn bowling, painting and it was all free.

3. I even saw a couple of my granddaughters trying to move like some of the dancers.  Let's see now, just raise that back leg and bend it like so.....

4. We split a Navajo taco, a Tongan chicken and rice dish and Italian ice. Later my daughter tried deep fried Oreos (uck) and a battered deep fried Twinkie.  Yes, folks the Twinkie is back again.

5. Every time we come, we see that recreational center with the amazing swimming pool and say, "I'd like to go there some day." But we forget until the next year.

This fella said it was okay to take his photo in the tub.

Very nice variety of interesting places. Children should never be left outside a fence.

those soap suds look like such fun. now would it be bad that an adult did the very same thing? it is always cute with the kiddie-poohs but an adult?? i wonder? ( :

What a beautiful blog!

An international Festival? That had to be fun.

Genealogy - color me impressed . . . every once in a while I'll find someone I'm related to - then, lose them again - it's . . frustration.
You certainly have my respect.

What a fun-filled day that must have been! love your beautiful garden, mine is a non-existence cos I'm staying in a high-rise apartment, no garden what's ever,unless the public land around it.

Ercotravels said...

W. Latane Barton said...

And, fun was had by all. Oh, that's a no-brainer.. the guy letting you take his picture. Free advertisement for whatever he's selling. But, didn't it make a cute picture?

Norma Ruttan said...

Pauline said...

Great fun filled post. Love the first front yard!

From that thumbnail at the Oh The Places I've Been linkup, I wasn't expecting a Summer festival in America. I looks like you had a lot of fun, and I think my own kids would be elbow deep in suds, too.
