Feile Franklin

This past Saturday, we set up a booth at Feile (pronounced Fay-La) Franklin, a local Celtic festival. It overlapped the Farmer's Market a little bit, so Jacob and I ran the booth at the festival while Mom and Dad worked the one at the Farmer's Market. It was rainy and so cold that we almost froze. A lot of the vendors bailed out due to the inclement weather, and there weren't a whole lot of people there. We did hand out quite a few CSA flyers, which was the reason we were there in the first place. We were across the street from the dance stage, so we were able to watch the Celtic dancers. Much to Jacob's delight, they performed the Highland Fling. We also got to talk to the man who sold wooden swords, axes, spears, and shields. He is a jousting knight at Renaissance festival tournaments, with his own squire and everything! I didn't take many pictures, but here are a few.

I love these draught horses!
Jacob was wearing his kilt, but he got so cold that he changed back into his jeans. :)
