Today was the opening of Santa-Cali-Gon Days on the Independence Square. It is a festival celebrating the location in Downtown Independence where the Santa Fe, California & the Oregon trails met.
Jean, Phyllis, Doug and Marlon were 4 of the over 200,000 visitors to the festival this year.
We went Friday evening when the crowds were not yet large and the weather was just right, in the 80's.
Phyllis tried on this hat made of paper (I guess that makes it a paper hat). It folds up flat.
Doug and Jean enjoyed the ice cream sundaes sold by one of the participating church volunteers.
After a couple of hours of walking around and looking at the wares for sale Phyllis, Marlon, and Jean take a breather and listen to some of the live music.
