Festival of the Voyageur (aka Rendezvous)

posted Sep 13, 2016, 3:55 AM by Cub Scout
Celebrate a 19th-century fall gathering as hundreds of re-enactors portraying Ojibwe, voyageurs and fur traders prepare for winter trading along the Snake River. Watch as contestants vie for the title of the best all-around voyageur. Competitions will test strength and cunning. Shop at historic vendors for handcrafted wares and clothing. Hands-on children's activities include candle dipping, a scavenger hunt and the popular game "bead scramble." A highlight of the weekend is a festive, country dance with live fiddle music and lessons held outside Saturday night at 6:30 p.m.  Look at the Pack calendar for details.
