Boulder Creek Hometown Festival was Labor Day Weekend. We had never seen zucchini races before. They are fun!

Human kids pick a large zucchini. Then they get wheels and decorate the zucchini.

The completed zucchinis and young owners, start at the top of this slope. At the designated time, the board is lifted and the zucchinis race down the slope.

And the race begins

It is so much fun to decorate a zucchini and also fun to watch the races.

This festival had the regular wonderful stuff:  great food, live bands, hula-hoops, face painting and more. But the new thing for these ducks was the zucchini race.

So many huge zucchinis

Zeb the Duck, and the rascal Soapy Duck, went to the Boulder Creek Festival in Boulder, Colorado with their moms.  We first decided to go for the duck races, but last time we told you about that.

This festival had so much!

This is a great place for kids.  These kids are inside plastic bubbles that float on water.

Fun for a hot day.

Yes, we did get wet sitting on the edge.  And we liked it.  Again, we wish we were human.

This train is great.  We are on the engine.

Kids were smiling and having fun here.

The climbing wall is really tall.  We look so small on the ground.

Don’t think this is for ducks to climb.

These girls have hula-hoops.  And they know how to use them.

Hula-hoops!

The section of the festival with rides had this crazy roller coaster.  These humans are upside down.

Scary for ducks and humans.  The assortment of carnival games on the midway was fun.

Festivals always have so many things to see and buy.  This booth has a variety.

Great shopping at festivals

We are sitting on the rack of belts.

Walking and laughing makes our moms hungry and thirsty.  We had nachos, funnel cakes, and lots of diet pop.   So many food choices at festivals.   We hope you visit festivals this summer.   The music is so nice and they have a great variety of musicians.

Outdoor festival in Boulder.  Great music
