Boulder Creek Hometown Festival with Zeb and Soapy

Yesterday I, Zeb the Duck, and Soapy Smith Duck, went to Boulder, Colorado to the Boulder Creek Hometown Festival.    This is a 4 day, end of summer festival.   It began Friday evening, continuing Saturday, Sunday and Monday.   First we went to the kid’s area.   After all, Zeb and Soapy are kids.   Some lucky small humans can get inside these Water Bubbles and try to walk on water.

This really looks like it is fun.   Wow!   This girl can really jump.

She is on the Bungy Tramp and having a great time.   Of course, every festival must have a bouncing house.

Next we headed to the zucchini races.   Young humans choose a zucchini from those available.   The parents can pay the fee.   First the zucchinis get wheels.   Then the young ones decide which decorating supplies will make their zucchini attractive and, of course, fast.   When ready, the zucchini is placed at the top of the ramp.   When the race begins, the board is lifted and the zucchinis race down the incline.

They really look great!   Walking to another area, we really did cross the Boulder Creek.

It looks so refreshing.   Even dogs like this festival and love to play in Boulder Creek.

Then we watched people throw balls to dunk a cop.

The proceeds from Dunk-A-Cop go to the Special Olympics.   There was a classic car show here also.

We thought this 1924 Ford Model T Fordor was great.

You can even check under the hood on these.   This festival had over 100 arts and crafts exhibitors, but this was one of our favorites.

We enjoy the items from the Himalayas, especially these singing bowls.   This booth also had several cloths with sayings from His Holiness, the XIV Dalai Lama.   It was a very nice summer type day;  people can rent a bicycle here and enjoy the great weather.

Rent a bike. Our legs are too short.

Much better than driving your car.   We hope you are enjoying festivals this Labor Day Weekend.   Whatever you are doing, enjoy the good weather and the long weekend.
