Sunday, August 13, 2023: 
The Old Wadena Society puts on the annual Old Wadena Rendezvous and Chautauqua.
It is in a historic location about 13 miles north of Staples, Minnesota.

Lots of exhibits to see.

They even taught music.

Plenty for he kids, including face painting and learning to pump water.

Storytelling was a real hit with the kids.

Then the dinner bell/triangle rang. The specialty of the day was chicken in fry bread.

Folk music.

The way it was one-hundred years ago.

A leathersmith was there to make items the old way.

Paula couldn't resist learning about pit-fired pottery.

All good things must come to an end. The horses knew the way back to the car.

Quote of the day:   A fun day.  Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
