Visiting Friends at the Rendezvous

 Janice and I stopped over to visit our friends at the Forts Folle Avoine Rendezvous near Danbury, WI this past weekend.  We had never been to one of these before, and I must admit I didn't know what to expect, but it was a lot of fun. 
 I'm sorry I didn't snap many pictures of the tent areas.  This is a very large event.  We mostly visited and wandered around through the different sections of the camp.

 This is our friends at their camp. Some may recognize the father of this picture as a guy that I do some biking with.
 This is a gathering of children in which the fellow standing on the left gives a little spiel to them, then fires off a canon that is loaded with candy.

 The pic above is shortly after the firing.  The children then do the search for the candy.  They were having loads of fun.

This is pic is of one of the market areas.
 And...if you have any ills

  Want to buy a canoe?  They have them here.
 This is an oven...Pizza anyone?  Bet it would be good.

 Two eagles kitchen is where we ate.
 Fry Bread and Praire Dogs
 Musical instruments too.

 Blacksmith is available

 We will be going to another one of these.  Fun was had.

After eating at Two Eagles we stopped over to the family cabin, and as we were sitting on the dock, this eagle flew right over us...but of course I am slow on the draw with the camera.


  1. We used to go to the rendezvous in Wausau each year when we lived there. It's interesting to learn the history in a life-like format.

    How appropriate to have an eagle fly over after eating at Two Eagles!

  2. Looks like a really fun event...


  3. That does look like fun. I've never heard of a "rendezvous" event like that.

  4. Love those types of gatherings. Fun for all.

  5. Yes, it was fun. I think it is a good experience for the participants children. No TV, computer, phones and other distractions, if only for a few weekends a year.

  6. All looks good, me and my dad have made birch bark canoes like the ones pictures.
