SEWE Recap, Part Two (Brittlebank Park)


Continuing the coverage on our SEWE trip…  We talked about the Market over at Gaillard Center, which is a good half-day trip.  On Saturday, we made our way over to Brittlebank Park.  This is the down and dirty part of SEWE.  The park-like setting gives the ‘Wildlife Festival’ some outdoor credibility.  At Brittlebank you’ll find a bunch of great brands showing off their wares in a tent-like environment, you’ll see a lot of dog exhibitions, including the famous dock dog competitions.

I love this part of the weekend, and we were blessed with some great weather.  A couple things: first, don’t worry about parking.  There is plenty, and it’s $5 and a short walk.  I will tell you that the food is scarce, therefore the lines are LONG.  Don’t be afraid to pack a Snickers bar in your pocket, as the line for BBQ is about 60 people deep.  I heard this a few times, so I have a feeling they’ll address it next year.

Anyway, here are all the goods…

Full house!:

(This pic was from Marion Square, but it fits the story…you get it…):

Dock Dogs:


Artist Matthew Proctor of Over Under.  This guy has some chops, and is a super cool dude.

The taxidermy game has been raised.  I don’t think this will fit on our dining room table…

I don’t know if anyone wears these anymore.  If you have to, maybe in your preferred shade of camo?

Ball and Buck holding court…as per usual:

My guys from Duck Camp made their way to SEWE – a GREAT addition:

My next daily commuter:

Deer stand on demand.  This give ‘lunch break’ a whole new meaning.  Brilliant.

And yes, there were trucks for #HJS.  I dig it.

We aren’t done yet…more to come.

    Croakies are very much a necessity…where else are you going to put those Costas or Persols??  And they’re great insurance to prevent from falling onto pavement

    I feel like Brittlebank was more crowded than usual. We were there around 3pm on Saturday and it was hard to get around. You nailed it on the food as well, not enough options and all in one spot made that area a pain to navigate. Still a great time!
