I have made some of the best memories I will never forget down in the city of Chicago. Ever since I was in my mother’s stomach, I have been going downtown to watch the “Festival of Lights” parade. We go with my aunt, uncle and cousins every year the weekend before Thanksgiving. My whole family and I are obsessed with Disney and Mickey lights up the city with his magic wand. For 19 years, I have been going to the parade and I will go every other year I can.
Camping is an exciting and affordable way to get all of those things. For a relatively low price you can pitch a tent at a State Park and “get back to nature”-- at least that’s how it used to be. Unfortunately times are rapidly changing, and camping, as it was intended, seems to be a thing of the past. To illustrate my point, I would like to paint a picture of the typical State Park camping experience. Pretend you are a vacationing middle class businessman from down state wanting to take his family on a camping excursion “up north” over his two week summer vacation.
Every year around May, my friends from middle school and I have attended the Bellevue Picnic. This started in 5th grade, because we had to go for band and play a couple of songs, and after we were done we would go hang out at the park until 10pm. The Bellevue Picnic is right across the street from Bellevue Middle, at the Red Caboose Park. It gets packed very quickly. I parked at my middle school for the 2016 picnic because there were no other spots at the church across the street.
A Visit to Cades Cove Having lived in the Blount County area all my life, I have taken many weekend trips with my family and friends to Cades Cove, a beautiful place situated in The Great Smokey Mountains. Here you can drive the eleven-mile trail (visiting the homes of people who once resided in Cades Cove), picnic in the park, and camp out for the weekend. Cades Cove contains a lot of history as well as beautiful sites. Located near the Townsend entrance to the Great Smokey Mountains National Park, the cove is a great place to come and relax for a weekend. From ETSU, the trip is only a 2-1/2 hour drive.
The Seaside Music Festival Wrap Up-May 21st and 22nd In the early 1900s it was a challenge to come up with a scheme to build on oceanfront property and attract people to come there. Now, generations later, the little town of Seaside Heights has received so much attention that it’s a wonder they haven’t transplanted The Brooklyn Bridge to Toms River just so tourists would be more comfortable crossing into the land of sea, sun and sin. The lure of Seaside Heights has attracted every legion of people from all over the tri-state area to this family oriented town for years. The clubs may pack in thousands of dancers and twenty something’s, but the boardwalk still commands the real tourism with its booths, games and rides that have been staples here since the turn of the century. The carousel alone has been in the same place since 1932 and is the jewel of only two existing at the Jersey Shore.
The parade is a once every year occasion held along the boulevards of Pasadena. There is likewise a review scene toward the end of the parade. You can essentially go to the parade along the road to watch, despite the fact that your view will not be great and you have quite a while to stand. I recommend you Google Rose Parade tickets on the off chance that you want to get show off saved seating. You can just go to the show zone and buy a ticket to see the buoys after the parade.
Every year the Mandan Indians and several other area tribes have a pow wow where they perform dances and sell jewelry and food for audiences from all around the world. Fort Lincoln State Park Mandan Village is a park located just outside Mandan that has a small village of actual earth lodges that visitors can walk into and see. Visitors feel like they have been taken back into a part of history because all the items one would have found during that time are in the lodges. One lodge even has a man (not real) hanging from the rafters representing the Okipa Ceremony. The park is a truly amazing sight to see and keeps the memory alive and well about the Mandan Indians heritage and way of life.
The park is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and on Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. (York). As I turned left off the main highway, and drove down the muddy, winding road to the Park's environmental center, I was in amazement at all the trees and wooded area that surrounded the park. As far as I could see, the hillside were engulfed with trees, mainly pine and spruce. After I had parked my car, and began walking towards the rustic looking, wood covered, 14,000 square foot building, I couldn't help but notice all the children and adults that were there. From the looks of it, I'd say about 40 children, accompanied by 10 or 12 adults (Richard).
But aside from these few well-known parks, there are also several other smaller parks in the city. In fact, the information leaflet for the Kasseler Garten Kultur festival brags of the seventy-one thousand trees in the urban areas of the city. So then, it is only natural that a city with a population so proud of their outdoor spaces would host an outdoor festival with plenty of activities available to be able to fully enjoy the great outdoors. This is especially true when considering that spending time outdoors with family and friends in the summer months is a very popular German pastime. The Kasseler Garten Kultur festival took place entirely outdoors, with plenty of activities for groups to partake in, such as a bike ride, playing volleyball and basketball, and even dance workshops.
