Full Time RV Travel–Estes Park Street Fair


Scandanavian Festival - Down Town Estes Park Colorado

There's nothing we love better than a good street festival. . .
especially street fair food. . .
so on Saturday we headed out to enjoy the 
Scandanavian Midsummer Festival in downtown Estes Park. . .

Here is an idea of the type of food available from the vendors. . .
since we had breakfast about two hours before we arrived. . . Swedish Meatballs and Sauerkraut didn’t really really appeal. . .
plus the line was really long. . .
so we headed for what we knew we would love. . .

the pastry tent. . .yum. . .lots and lots of pastries.  
Give me an apple and apricot strudel. . .full size please. . .
oh, and a cinnamon crisp and also an apple something or other. . .
now we’re talking. . .deee. . .lish. . .us!

We shared the apple strudel with our friends at the campground. . .
and saved all the rest for ourselves. . .LOL!

But my very favorite thing were the kids who were participating in the demonstrations. . .so adorable. . .
(for privacy reasons, I’ve blurred out their faces). . .
just because I wouldn’t really want 
anyone pasting pics of my grands

First, there was this little girl and boy 
using the spinning wheel. . .very, very cute. . .

and then these two were helping what I assume 
was their grandmother make Lefse. . .
that little one with the green shirt was very, 
very serious about his job. . .
they were both doing great. . .lefse reminded me of a tortilla. . .
warm with a cream cheese powdered sugar mix spread on. . .
folded over into a triangle. . .yum!

It was a fun time. . .
but we were very thankful we decided 
to head home when we did. . .
a house fire had started a chain reaction 
further down the canyon towards the National Park. . .
right where we turn off to go to our campground. . .
very, very scary. . .

Still getting my fire pics loaded. . .will post them ASAP. . .
