The theme of Moosefest 2008 was "Rising From the Ashes." Back in 2004, the Moosefest committee saw interest waning and numbers of attendees declining and decided Moosefest 2005 would be the last formal one.
Then the email and Yahoo group posts came in droves. So after taking a couple of years of "informal moosefests," the committee planned 2008.
And sold out for the first time ever in March! People came from Italy, Israel, Canada, and all over the United States.
Also appearing for the first time in Cicely, Mr. Moosechick and newly arrived Baby Moosechick (born in April). After 11 years of Moosefests, it was great handing camera duties off to someone else seeing it for the first time (and an actual photographer, not a drunk monkey like me).
arrived in Roslyn on Thursday at our home base, the Huckleberry House B&B and met up with the estrogen crowd (named by the hubbie as he was the only male there). If you're even in town outside Moosefest, I completely recommend the Huckleberry (but it is booked indefinitely for Moosefests!)
