Sand Architecture

Sand castle on Ghost Lake

Last weekend, a really nice family camped at Boulder Lodge for a few days. The weather was a little on the chilly side for mid- July but on the last day of their vacation, the sun was shining and it reached 80 degrees so the kids finally got to swim and play in the sand. Then they got creative and built this beautiful sand castle. Thank you Messenger family.

What could be better than spending a Saturday afternoon meandering through various arts and crafts booths and listening to live music in a casual setting located on the beautiful grounds of Boulder Lodge? Mark your calendar for August 18th. Don’t forget your lawn chairs, lawn blankets and umbrellas. The whole event takes place outside and will go on rain or shine.

We have a great music line up this year starting at noon and running until 10pm. Curt and Eli Stone out of Minneapolis, a father and son duo who have been playing together for a few years will get your attention. Curt, the father has been playing guitar for over 50 years but says his son is a much better player than himself. Molly and the Danger band will take the stage mid-afternoon and always have a rousing performance. Sean & Ian Okamoto, also a father and son duo, have really gained popularity over the last couple years. You’ll be mesmerized by the sound that Ian produces on his keyboards along with his vocals. Then to finish things off, The Big Top All-stars is a group comprised of members of Big Top Chautaqua’s “Bellfast to Bluegrass” show.

Art and Craft vendors will be displaying and selling their work from noon until 6pm. Brats, burgers, beer, wine and soda will be available for purchase throughout the day. There will be plenty of yard games for all ages to enjoy. Admission is $15.00 for adults, $10.00 for teens ages 13-18 and free for kids 12 and under.
