Picture of the Parade. One of the entrees was Shrek. He sunk by the way. the Pony also sunk.
View of the distance across the Lake. The guy in the Football actually was the winner this year.
Even Elvis was in the House.
Some of the other inmates.
Well Ginny And I went up to Windsor NS to watch the only festival of it's kind that I know of. Where you get a lot of silly git's dressed up in funny costumes. Rowing ,Paddling, Sailing or Motoring across a mile wide Lake in a very large Pumpkin. Yes you heard me a Pumpkin. What you make Pies out off or Jack-o-Lanterns.
Now we are talking about 300 plus pounds up to 900 lbs Giant Pumpkins or Squash. It all started with a Mr. Howard Dill who grew over the years a world wide following for Giant Pumpkins. Some of these Pumpkins are the size of small cars and can carry more than 1 person. It is the 10th year of the Pumpkin Festival.
Unfortunate Mr. Dill passed away earlier this year. Mr. Dill also has on his property" Long Pond' the place where Ice Hockey actually started. The farmers allow various groups and individuals use of the Giant Vegetables as long as they give the seeds back to the farmer. they then are hollowed out painted, stuff added for fun and partially filled with foam or sponge to give them more stability and flotation increase. Although that doesn't guarantee that they will not sink or fill up with water.
This year we had over 60 Pumpkins in the race about 10 didn't make it and sank some sank and were still paddled or pushed over by the person. they then have a parade with funds being raised for the Children's wish foundation.
I have included some links to some Video I shot that is posted on You Tube.

Well Joy of Joys Election Day is finally here. There was no choice to be had in local Candidates.
Ginny and I went to do our duty and Voted anyways. If the Bloc had been running here in Nova Scotia I might have been tempted to vote for them at least they look out for the people of their "La Belle Province".
We just held our nose and voted for the person regardless of the Party who would represent the People of Dartmouth the best.
It damn well wasn't either the Tories or the Liberals. This way at least. We have someone to complain too as we voted for Him. Should He not get in, then I have someone to complain too about how bad things are becoming. Only in Canada , EH.
