For I think seven years in a row, we traveled to Fredericton the first weekend in August for the Fur Fest. Unfortunately, the organizer gave up and nobody continued the tradition despite attracting 150+ men from across North America and even a few from Europe and Australia. The organizer said that Mayor Woodside would have nothing to do with the first Fur Fest, but by the time it began attracting significant business to the town, he had a conversion of practicality. In subsequent years, he issued a proclamation welcoming the bears to Fredericton.

This is an important holiday weekend as Monday will mark the celebration of New Brunswick Day. I miss our trips through the Atlantic Provinces. Perhaps Mark and I will attend our first pride parade in two decades next August. There's a really great group of fun-loving bears in NB and NS.

Not LGBT-related but have you ever been to the Hopewell Rocks? Truly a unique natural area.

Yes, we always spent a week exploring NS/NB and PEI when we went to Fur Fest. I'm hoping I can get some more peanuts for telling you that. It's almost lunch time and I'm hungry.
