Niska-Day 2014

This past Saturday was Niska-Day, which is a little community celebration our town has every year. There is a parade, and then in the afternoon a fair with craft booths, food, rides, petting zoo, etc. We took Lewis last year, but of course he doesn’t remember it now. This year we started telling him about it a few days ahead, and he kept asking “parade? parade?” He was especially interested in the idea of the marching bands, so we had to look up some bands/parades in a couple of our books and he also acted out a marching band parade with his stuffed animals with Daddy.

We happened to leave the apartment at the same time as our neighbor J and his mom. J is 5 years old and he and Lewis love playing together outside in the evenings, so we all walked over together to see the parade. We were a bit early, so we went into the Sunoco where they were giving out balloons to the kids, and there was a live pig inside for some reason too which the boys had fun seeing.

It was COLD this year. Last year we were in shorts and t-shirts, this year we wore jackets and I actually ended up running back home for a blanket and warm hat for Lewis!

Excited to finally see the parade and hear a band playing!

We went over to Niska-Day almost immediately after the parade. We got lunch when we got there, then wandered around looking at the rides and animals. Lewis enjoyed seeing the rides again, but isn’t quite big enough to ride on them yet this year.

Lewis and Daddy got some grain to feed the goats. Yay goats!

We didn’t take a lot of pictures this year, just some with the animals. Besides the animals, one of Lewis’ favorite things to see was a woman on stilts who was walking around and juggling. We stopped several times to watch her.

We had a great day out, and will have to keep our eyes out for other fairs and things to visit this summer!
