I will try to upload a few photos today, but the internet connection seems to be incredibly s-l-o-w for some reason.
This is Fred Ward, one of the elders of our Jade World. Each year, he comes and gives a slide presentation on our local jade, and it’s retrieval.
The belly dancing troupe who performed for us on Saturday.
Saturday’s crowd was the largest ever. I was afraid that we’d have a lot of people, but that due to the economy, they would not be buying. According to the vendors I talked to, my fears were ungrounded.
And what would a Jade Festival be without the Jade? This was just one of the 49 vendors present (excluding food and non-profits). Note the “Jade Cov” license plate in the back. That’s it for today. Check back tomorrow for more photographs.
