Continuing the coverage on our SEWE trip… We talked about the Market over at Gaillard Center, which is a good half-day trip. On Saturday, we made our way over to Brittlebank Park. This is the down and dirty part of SEWE. The park-like setting gives the ‘Wildlife Festival’ some outdoor credibility. At Brittlebank you’ll find a bunch of great brands showing off their wares in a tent-like environment, you’ll see a lot of dog exhibitions, including the famous dock dog competitions.
I love this part of the weekend, and we were blessed with some great weather. A couple things: first, don’t worry about parking. There is plenty, and it’s $5 and a short walk. I will tell you that the food is scarce, therefore the lines are LONG. Don’t be afraid to pack a Snickers bar in your pocket, as the line for BBQ is about 60 people deep. I heard this a few times, so I have a feeling they’ll address it next year.
Anyway, here are all the goods…
(This pic was from Marion Square, but it fits the story…you get it…):
The taxidermy game has been raised. I don’t think this will fit on our dining room table…
I don’t know if anyone wears these anymore. If you have to, maybe in your preferred shade of camo?
Ball and Buck holding court…as per usual:
My guys from Duck Camp made their way to SEWE – a GREAT addition:
My next daily commuter:
Deer stand on demand. This give ‘lunch break’ a whole new meaning. Brilliant.
And yes, there were trucks for #HJS. I dig it.
We aren’t done yet…more to come.
