Harvest Fest + Lakewalk Fest + Kites - oh my!

Michelle & I enjoyed a beautiful day last Saturday & took the kids to Bayfront Park/The Lakewalk for multiple festivities. It was such a fun (free!) day. We got a free kite for Dahlia courtesy of the Kiwanis, we got our passports stamped at various tables along the lakewalk & turned them in for free ice cream (Dahlia's having the fireman sign her book below). I bought a pound and a half of red potatoes & a green pepper for $1.90. We danced the Maypole. We got sun-tinted pink, walked thousands of steps. Dahlia painted Lake Superior rocks & "went fishing." (we were too tired to check out the zoo animals at Fitgers, go for a hayride or get our photo taken -next year!). What a great family friendly (cheap!) day. Can't wait til next year.

Adorable close up of August! There was a fire truck? We must've missed that one, bummer! It was a great event this year.

The fire truck was right by the Marine Museum (Part of the Lakewalk Festival). Also the big police mobile command center thingy.

How fun!!!

There is always so much to do it makes me a little insane sometimes. Looks like you guys picked just the right day to check out this event.
