Closing out the Summer

So we've officially crossed the threshold from summer to fall and that's a pretty good opportunity for me to finally sit down and wrap up some of the last adventures of summer. In Photo form! So, without much fanfare, here are some brief glimpses into the Celtic Harvest Festival.

There was a lot going on at the Harvest fest and instead of trying to capture the whole of it, I decided to take a look at the little things, especially the weaving tent, where I learned about looms, the Colorado Tartan, and how to hand make lace like a boss.

Now here's a quick look at the Festival Italiano! Which yes, I spent much too much time eating, and the best performance of the day had to be the Flag throwers, though the jugglers were pretty awesome as well.

So the cultural festivals are in their downward motion as warm weather transitions to cool and crisp. There's a couple left so get out there and get your learning on. These festivals are a great way to learn about other cultures, and hopefully will inspire you to head out and see them for yourselves.
