Doggie Days and July activities

The Friends of the Dog Park at Mosquito Lake State Park are sponsoring their second "Doggie Days" competition. I missed last year's competition so I don't really know for sure what to expect. Ken and I will be going to watch for a while and then Ken is going to be one of the judges during the competitions. The event is today from 12-3 pm in the Dog Park which is near the beach at Mosquito Lake.

We are taking a camera so I'll try to post some of the pictures later today or tomorrow after we get them cropped, re-sized, etc. (That's Ken's department).

There has been a lot of activity at Mosquito Lake this weekend. Yesterday there was a WARA event at the marina. We didn't have time to stop to check it out but there were people with booths or EZ Up tents set up. We are guessing that WARA stands for Warren Amateur Radio Association.

Cindy, the naturalist at the campground, has had a lot of new activities this year. Friday night she lea a bike hike and gave information about the park. She looked like the mama goose with her goslings coming down the road, many bikers following behind her in single file. I am hoping to join her soon for one of these bike tours.

Joe's Marina is sponsoring live bands next weekend, July 2-3-4 from 5-8 pm. He always has great bands and we are looking forward to hearing them until it is time to go show movies at the ampitheater. Bring a chair and sit on the lawn and enjoy or join the crowd of dancers if you choose. Joe has food available for sale also and it is good.

Next weekend the campgrounds should be full. A good family time for mid summer fun! This summer is slipping past too quickly like most others!

The Campground Friends group has many activities planned for the holiday weekend and throughout July including Red, White and Blue days where campers can decorate their campsites to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday to be held on Friday, July 1. The friends group is also sponsoring their second Craft show to be held on July 16. We had a good turnout of vendors and customers last year so plan to attend this year if you missed it last year. Also, on July 15 the Christmas in July event will be held and campers can decorate their campsites for Christmas. A busy month for campers at Mosquito.
