North Powder, Oregon, Huckleberry Festival

Malcolm and I attended the North Powder Huckleberry Festival on Saturday, July 25.

The day started out with a Community Breakfast (huckleberry pancakes, I presumed) while we were setting up our booth in the downtown area.  Along with the breakfast and vendor booths, this is a list of other activities that went on during the day:

Huckleberry Festival Parade

Of course, our favorite was the Huckleberry Dessert Contest!!  Some of those desserts were the most delectable dishes I have ever seen.  Malcolm tried real hard to volunteer as a judge, but unfortunately, they had already begun the judging before he asked!!

About ten producers/artisans booths were set up around the area with everything from huckleberry goodies, to jewelry, to handmade flutes to wooden creations to handmade stitched items to personal care products to …..

All in all, we had a good time, made lots of new friends, and sold some huckleberry products!  Hopefully, we can attend again next year.

    Just want to tell you our event will be Saturday, July 28, 2012. We have added a 5K Fun Run/Walk and a guided bike ride on the newly designated Grande Tour Oregon Scenic Bikeway to the many fun activities of the day. The addition of the Huckleberry Hot-Rod Show-n-Shine last year was a hit and it will return this year. We no longer have the lawn mower races. Please join us for another fun event this summer! We hope you plan to return.

    Hey Janet,

    We will also be there on the 28th for our R/C Helicopter & airplane demonstrations this year. We had a lot of fun last time, and we will be raffling off a ready to fly helicopter package to benefit the Bingham Family as well. See you there!!!
