Great White North Festival.

Our Location today is Huntsville, Ontario, Canada.

It is amazing what cooler fresh air and long hours on the road will do when you go to bed. We slept so soundly a bomb would not have woke us from our sleep. We even slept later than normal waking after 8:30 this morning. It felt good to get our rest! 
Since the predicted low for our area was 48 F (9 C) last night we had closed all the windows and vents in order to keep the moisture out of the trailer. We’re not as resilient as the days when we used to sleep on the ground in tents.
When we woke up this morning it was cold inside the trailer and we had plans to attend the morning pancake breakfast so we dressed for cold weather. Was that a mistake! We walked all the way down to the beach area enjoyed our pancakes sausage and coffee and got a chance to socialize with a few of the other campers. After the long walk back to the trailer through the crowded campground we were both boiling hot and had to quickly change back to summer time clothes. 
After lunch we headed toward the town of Huntsville but on the way we stopped to check out a home that was putting on a Charitable Yard Sale that also had entertainment as well as a barbecue and baked goods in order to raise funds. It would have been a great place to shop if one was trying to set up a home. 
Finally arriving in Huntsville we found ourselves a central place to park so we could walk around looking at all the touristy shops and yet be close to the entertainment that would take place later in the evening. It was unbelievable the changes that have taken place to this small community since the last time we were here ten years ago. We finally stopped at The Mill on Main restaurant around 4:30 for a relaxing and restful supper where had a chance to talk of the interesting things we had just seen. 
The reason we took our time having supper was tonight was the start of the Great White North Festival which is held yearly. Main Street was closed to vehicular traffic and there were approximately 93 Canadian entertainers located throughout the venue brought in as buskers to give everyone in attendance their choice of entertainment for the night. Most of the local shops remained open past their usual hours of business as well as a number of street vendors had appeared all doing booming business. There were acrobatic acts juggling entertainers on stilts drum bands and lots of things for the kids to do. 
Needless to say by the time we got home it was well past our bedtime but we’ll make up for it in the morning. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
