On New Year’s Eve I recall celebrations I’ve been to this year at events and festivals in a photo essay. The events, cultural traditions and fests were all different; and food, music and people made them all memorable.
The gleam in people’s eyes and smiles on their faces as they participated in a maple sugar festival at learning the different steps in maple sugaring.
The sparkling children’s faces and a flurry of activity as they searched for eggs through gardens at an Easter egg hunt.
The shine and shimmer at an Independence Day Parade decorated with flags and filled with the music of marching bands.
The sheen and luster of polished paint and chrome at a summer classic car show.
The blazing boldly colored boats speeding across a lake at a dragon boat festival.
The glistening wine bottles and crafts at a harvest festival of the vine with music.
The dazzling display of arts and crafts and music in a historic town square during a fall arts fair.
The frighteningly fun and creatively costumed marchers in a Halloween parade.
Wishing you a Happy New Year’s Eve!
Safe and Joyous Celebration!
