Road trip to the Woodstock Fibre Festival

I’m a bit behind in blog posts, this post is about the road trip we took to see the Woodstock Fibre Festival that was held on October 18th, 2014 of this year. The festival as far as I know is held in October every year. I’m just going to photo bomb so people can have a look and see what the festival is all about. I didn’t get everything but it does give a taste of the various vendors that were there.

We drove through Toronto on the 401 highway and I started taking photos when I saw the Milton water tower, I have a thing for taking pictures of water towers. Also the day was very overcast so the pictures are a bit dark and fuzzy in spots.

  1. That looks like you had a great time! I can’t wait to go to another fibre festival – Woolfest in 31 weeks and 3 days :p I LOVE looking at pictures of fibre festivals. What did you buy? 🙂

    • I’ll write up a blog showing what I got. I’ve been away the last couple of days looking after my grandsons while their mom was in hospital delivering a new baby sister. Very tiny and oh so cute 🙂
