Winnipeg Folkfest at Birds Hill Park aka Hippies on Grass


Well hello too all that read.....

Todays post deals with my trip to Winnipeg with my dad and kel...

We went to the folk festival, about 20 minutes away from the Peg, thursday friday and saturday July 6, 7, and 8th.

It was great, everyone sits on tarps, its crazy, i have never seen so many tarps, and if you have lawn chairs they are only those kind that are really low to the ground, as to not impeed the ground sitters view,
Oh the hippies, so laid back, shoeless wonders....
Everyone is so nice, and curtious.
Everyone leaves their bags laying on their tarps and just walking around, no worries of thievery.. No litter, and real plates at all the food vendors! Boys in sorangs.... Free Free Free :)

Little kids dancing in bubbles, who knows where their parents are lol.... But nice kids, not screamy ones, the kind of kids that only hippies could raise.


This is the main stage at night, i moved the camera so it would look all CRAZY lol, there is some hippy bandana in the forground there :) ..............

It's so weird to see ppl with different hair colour, since I am so used to a sea of only black hair. Also, I like how you mentioned that you have never seen so many tarps anywhere.......the amount of ppl there would probably be similar to what I would see on an average day in the park.....wow, so weird!!!!!! I am happy you set up this blog so that you can chart your European adventures. Keep up the good work my friend
