The Children of the Feast of the Hunters' Moon

Every year I see so many amazing people at the Feast of the Hunters' Moon  that it's hard to choose who [whom] to highlight.  This year was no different but the warmer weather brought out more children than ever and I decided to highlight them this year.

These are just a few of the amazing kids and families doing amazing things at this reenactment. 

The basket above was full of this cute little guy here.    He and his sister provided a lot of entertainment for the folks encamped around them.

This young man was marching with his mom in one of the regiments.

There were many children who marched with the regiments.  Some were fifers, some carried fake wood musket cutouts in formation with their parents, who were carrying the real things with bayonets. 

My favorite of all was this family of at least 4 children [one was on Mom's knee in the back] who had set up camp.  This interaction involved protecting the apples from young sister who wanted to taste them all.  

There were a lot of Indians again this year and I was excited to see a number of children performing also.  

It's a big show and there is a lot of walking.  We often see kiddos being pulled in various types of wagons.   This is one of the most traditional wagons we saw.   She's got a sheepskin under her. 

This is not a child, but one of the coolest things we saw this year.   A giant Newfoundland dog with a sled.
