Celebration of the USA in Avon, Colorado

I, Zeb the Duck, loved the 28th annual Celebration of the USA in Avon, Colorado.  This festival was held at Nottingham Park in Avon.

Nottingham Park by Nottingham Lake is great for festivals

Avon is a few miles west of Vail.

Of course we were hungry and such choices.

After chicken on a stick, burritos and gyros, we concentrated on desserts.  Did you see that sign?  Deep fried pickles, Baconade  (Bacon lemonade?)  Also deep fried PB&J.    We decided on funnel cake and mini donuts.

We love funnel cakes and mini donuts!

He is so still, he looks like a bronze statue, but he is alive.   For little ones only.

This looks like fun!

Small humans have fun in this bouncy house.

After dark, we watched the fireworks.  I love fireworks.  I also liked the patriotic music during the fireworks.  In Avon I watched 10,000 shells exploding over the lake.

Beautiful!

Beautiful!

I am so glad we went to the Celebration of the USA in Avon, Colorado.  Happy Birthday United State of America!

Celebrate the USA!

Celebrate the USA!
