Horse Show, Fair Day, and More!

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014


Hello, again, dear friends! Olive Oyl and Lady of the Lake here with some Fair Day news just for you!

We’ve had an jam-packed awesome day so far! We started off the day with a yummy breakfast, then headed over to our cabins for a quick clean, then over to our booths to set up for fair day! We then took a nice little walk over to the Brumby Horse Show, which was fantastic and showed off all the hard work that our Brumby campers have put in this summer. After the show we were all released to the fair! We had our classic fair day goodies, like Forbidden Planet’s Fried Dough, Valhalla doing ice cream, and the AWAC Pretzels. Paquatahnee helped out with the chocolate fountain, Chateau Fiasco did the Pizza Oven, and Bermuda Triangle took care of drinks. We also had corn dogs and hot dogs thanks to our kitchen staff. There were also other long-time traditions, like Taj Mahal’s kiss-o-grams and the Horse Drawn Carriage rides. There were tons of other fun activities going on, like Avalon’s Poop Shoot (dunking tank), the Burrow’s jelly bean count, French Quarter’s moon bounce, and the Loons slip n’ slide. There were also the classic pillow jousting and sumo wrestling, thanks to Wombles and LCH. Camelot did face painting and Shangri-La did the marriage booth. There was of course a DJ, thanks to Fiddler’s Green, plus a climbing wall! Wow! It was an afternoon of fun and excitement, where we filled our bellies with yummy treats and played tons of awesome games. We also had the chance to check out the art show happening in the Hilton dance and glass studios, plus pottery in the pottery barn. There were loads of incredible pieces…it was truly amazing to see all of the campers’ creations from the session in one place. The Alive! art show took place in the Foothills and it was spectacular. There were found art sculptures, journals, glass bead wire sculptures, liquid photography, dance photography, a video piece, and fashion design. If there show wasn’t amazing enough, all of their visual art blew us away! We also had a special treat during the fair when our longtime kitchen staff Chris played the bagpipes, clad in his kilt and all! We’ll definitely miss the sweet sounds of the bagpipe when we leave HVC in just a short while…

After our fantastic fair day, we gathered in the Rec Hall to watch some slide shows and videos. The slide show was a great way to reminisce about the fantastic times we’ve had together this past month, and there were many fabulous photos. We also got to appreciate the work of our awesome video classes.

This evening, we have a final dance in the backyard together. There’s sure to be lots of hanging out and white book signing, in addition to loads of dancing. We can’t wait!

Tomorrow we’ll have packing day, where we’ll all get set to head home for the summer. We’ll also get to spend some good quality times with our cabins doing a cabin activity. It’s sure to be a great last day.

Signing out,

Olive Oyl and Lady of the Lake
