My brother invited us to go to a Preppers festival in New Castle a few weeks ago. I like learning survival skills, and I enjoy learning about homesteading. So it seemed like a fun festival to attend.
It was a very warm day. The festival was a little smaller than we had expected. This was only their second year.
There were many booths with survival gear of all kinds. We liked watching the demo for some firestarters, below:
I enjoyed going in the little seed store and browsing. They had tons of heirloom seeds, as well as other sorts of homemade goodies.
We also visited the Artisan center while there. These black yeti are all over in Craig County, and will run you about $50. Who knew we would see Bigfoot at the Preppers festival?
Paracord bracelets are always a big hit with the boys. Those were the only things we bought. The food supply buckets were intriguing, but very expensive. You can make your own for much, much less.
Overall, it was a fun day, but I think next year we'll head to the kite festival instead!
