All In A Flutter At Camp Alexandra

COMMUNITY volunteers devoted several days to rejuvenating Camp Alexandra buildings and grounds for a popular festival on May 25th at Crescent Beach. Beneath the fluttering flags and amid the paint, spit and polish and freshly mowed lawns, there will be celebratory music, creative corners and lots of family fun.

The 39th annual event brought back memories of when my daughter was small and the giggly excitement we shared at the fair.

I had a chance to drop in at the event after starting this post. The mood this year was as lively as ever.

The sun broke through the rainy start to the day and beamed on the colorful artistic and cultural displays.

These dancers wearing ornate costumes were preparing to go on stage.

Whiffs of different foods mingled with the clatter of music.

Vendors were everywhere and for the most part their items for sale were displayed neatly. However, I think it is safe to say that this community party and break from routine created a heap of chaotic fun for everyone.

  1. Camp Alexandra has to be more than 100 years old by now, right? And for a moment I thought you were saying H was a youngster 39 years ago, and of course, she wasn't even born then, but for the time it took my old head to do the math, I felt almost as old as Camp A.

  2. Such a wonderful array of great colors. I enjoyed this post so much.

  3. Looks like great fun!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  4. The colors are amazing in your photos! I'm sure everybody had a grand time there.

  5. Flags are in a flutter and people might have been excited before the stage or just joining the event as your title depicted precisely. I’m always attracted by your sense of expression and photography.

  6. Such pretty flags. Those costumes are truly gorgeous!

  7. I love those colourful flags fluttering in the wind.

  8. Small town festivals are so much fun. - Margy
