I THINK this is them. I could be wrong. Click to access YouTube video.

They appear to be the ‘featured’ band for the 2014 Multicultural Day. They have two prime-time performances: 11:00 – 11:30 & 11:45 – 12:15.

For reasons I can’t quite fathom I had assumed, obviously incorrectly, that they were an African ensemble. Well it appears, instead, that they are ‘Native American‘ enactors. Seems good.

Click to access the official Website — which, alas, is a tad short on information even though we but 3 weeks away from the event.



So, today, Friday, August 15, 2014 this is what I got when I clicked on the ‘Program’ HOPING to see a Schedule of the Performances!
C’est la vie.

Don’t bother going here for the Schedule. Try the Facebook account below.


Luckily I did find a Facebook account with the supposed program. So that was good. Why they can’t also have this on their Website is mystery. Must be a cultural thing in Laconia.

Well unlike last year it is back in September. That is good — I think.

Tad early in my opinion, but what do I know.

It used to be the 2nd Saturday of September. I know — because the Highland Games used to be the 3rd Saturday.

But this year it is the first Saturday, albeit with September starting on a Monday.

Fibonacci Letterpress, last year’s favorite was also there
with an even bigger press.
We got to chat for a few minutes. He had a steady stream of visitors.
That was good.
He appeared to be a big hit. I am glad.

Favorite Image: Drummer with ‘Edwin Pabon y Su Orchestra‘.
His face was so expressive and he was so into it. This picture really doesn’t do him enough justice.
