43rd Annual Pioneer Days in Canyonville, OR
Saturday Rich and I attended the 43rd annual Pioneer Days Parade and festivities in Canyonville, OR. It is always the last Saturday in August. The parade is about an hour long and then they have bed races down the middle of town afterwards. I didn't get photos of the last of the parade or the bedraces......batteries went down on camera and I had forgot to bring extras. After the parade we walked over to the city park and walked through all the booths. We had decided earlier to go to Burger King for lunch. We used one of our coupons out of the recently mailed booklet and saved $3.49. After lunch we went over to a friend's house and picked about 30 pounds of apples. These will be dehydrated. We worked on canning more pears that evening. Will finish up pears on Sunday afternoon.
