PSNEA PARTICIPATES IN THE POULSBO MIDSUMMER FEST

For 2011 Evelyn & I accepted the invitation on behalf of PSNEA and took CALLIE and CASSIE.  We were put on display with other Scandinavian dog breeds that were invited to the event. Dave & Jill Evander and LOUIE joined us for 2012 and 2014.

Midsummer Fest is a two day celebration of the summer solstice.

The festival highlights a mix of Scandinavian cultures that begins with the Swedish tradition of raising the Maistang or Maypole and concludes with the lighting of a ceremonial bonfire a Norwegian tradition that celebrates the arrival of summer.

2011 shows CASSIE with a local group called “Glamfolk”. They set up a typical “Viking Village” where visitors can learn about the Vikings culture, and how they lived.

For 2011 & 2012 there were a number of replica artifacts, craftsmen, merchants, and re-enactors ready and available to teach anyone who is interested in learning about the life of a Viking.

We were on display for three hours during the afternoon in Poulsbo’s Waterfront Park. We alternated being in our display area and walking our dogs amongst the crowd answering questions, posing for pictures and greeting the "little folk" as LOUIE is doing here.

PSNEA was well represented at this years Rose City Classic Meet The Breeds event held in conjunction with the Rose City Classic All Breed Dog Show. Not pictured are Dennis Bell & LOKI.

 

A highlight for PSNEA at this years show was a seminar for judges looking to add Norwegian Elkhounds to their credentials taught by Patricia Trotter. PSNEA supported Ms Trotter by providing some of the dogs she used in the seminar and we were invited to attend the lecture. It was a special treat to listen to a long time championship breeder and judge teach how to properly evaluate Elkhounds.
