What a fun Fourth of July Holiday Weekend we had!

I am just catching up after a great picnic in Conneaut Lake with family and friends…

a couple hours of sleep at the best “Brugnoli B&B”…

then off to Cleveland to to celebrate a wedding with more wonderful friends!

So today, I’m sharing a little photo journal of the fun festivities we had the great pleasure of being a part of at The First Annual Lake Park Bash!

And I’m guessing, it will not be the last!

I hope you will join me in reminiscing on the fun gathering.

1st Annual Lake Park Bash

We were greeted by an “Uncle Sam” Scarecrow

and festive decorations in red, white and blue.

Those who arrived by boat, were greeted by a salute from George himself

 

Lake Park Landing

and directed with arrows to point the way to the party.

One you got near, the smell of smoking chickens, pork, lamb, and beef permeated the perfect summertime breeze.

And the day didn’t end until early the next morning

with bonfire songs sung with guitar and fiddle.

It was a great Bash on the Lake Park cul-de-sac.

Thanks to the members of “da hood” for allowing us to be a part of it!

  1. Now this looks like a great time, love your photos!! The term Putt Putt I found out is an east coast term. you don’t see that on the west coast as far as I can tell. Lots of adult beverages in hand πŸ™‚

    And odd shadow I noticed. The Uncle Sam scarecrow has a shadow that reminds me of Wilma Flintstone, remember that old show? It’s the hair bun on the back of her head! Yeah, I’m weird…

  2. Awww…. Looks like the 4th of July’s we used to celebrate when I was a child. We would usually go up to Ford City where my mother’s family lived and it was just a great small town patriotic celebration. Good times! Thanks for sharing.

    And I want some of that Crappie White!
