Eel Ground Pow Wow

Before heading off to run a week of camp my week-long co-workers and I checked out the Eel Ground Pow Wow.

The only other Pow Wow I have been to is the Membertou 400 last summer on the Halifax Commons. This was a much smaller scale of celebrations but it was still full of beautiful clothing and dances:

There were flags from each of the Atlantic Provinces as well as the Canadian flag. I was sitting right in front of the gentleman with the Newfoundland flag so of course I took a photo:

What's a celebration (or a blog post) without food. Fry bread was for sale and you could get it with a number of things on it: taco fixin's, fruit, whip cream, molasses, sugar and more.

Matt when for the fruit and whip cream option, which turned out in true Chamberlain style to be very messy:

And I opted for a bit of molasses and brown sugar, SUPER YUMMY but pretty heavy feeling in my tummy:
