The Fireflies descended on our favourite camping spot again the weekend of August 5th, with most of us arriving on Thursday the 4th to really stretch our weekend out. There were some 26 trailers who partook of our club’s annual Family and Friends campout. We were surprised to find that a bunch of the Mississauga Lamplighters club had also discovered our spot and 9 trailers had been camping ahead of us for the full week and more. Nicolston is no longer a well-kept secret!
Again, it was the weekend of the Alliston Potato Festival and a good percentage of the group headed downtown for the friday night parade. It is always jam-packed and you need to stake out a spot early. Saturday’s street sale was fun too and Mirella was disappointed to find that even the bags of potatoes sold out before she got hers! How can that be?
This year the barbecue dinner that is always planned and hosted by the gentle men of our club, cooked up steak AND chicken, along with corn on the cob, baked potatoes, the every-present BEANS and pie and ice cream for dessert. How could anyone pass up this campout???
The weather was almost perfect and we enjoyed campfires every evening and lots of singing and music. Great time-cannot wait for next year!
