Oregon Country Fair

Today we went to the Oregon Country Fair. This is like no other fair you have seen! Some people described it as a "Hippee Fest", and there was definately more tie dye than I've seen all in one place, but it seemed more like a place for ANYONE to go and have fun. There were people in all kinds of fun and fanciful costumes, many in regular street clothes, and a few in only body paint and a skirt (men and women). There were several music stages, a circus stage, puppetry, spoken word, and a ton of kids' stuff. We had a great time, and look forward to going back next year!

Nadine, Josie, and Naia (peeking around her mom) came down from Portland. Jen (aka Naked Jen) came up from Santa Cruz for the 18th year in a row! It was really great to get to see her again!
