Just a quick post tonight. Ted, Patty, Buz and I walked downtown Wednesday evening in time to catch the opening parade of the 2nd Annual Festival of the Horse. We watched from the Marquette Park wall as all the island saddle horses ambled down Main Street, led by Chief Don “Duck” Andress. I’m volunteering for the Festival – which will continue on through Saturday night – so I should be able to get lots of news and some good photos. More to come . . . .
I wish everyone could be up here for the next few days as we celebrate the island where the Horse is King! There will be kids’ activities, carriage parades, horse lectures, horse stable tours on the West Bluff, a breed show, carriage driving demonstrations, a Barn Raising Party, and much, much more! I’ll be there with my camera! See you Friday morning!
