This year, I chose to go the local celebrations organized by my local city council of Canning, held at the Kent Street Weir park in Wilson.
In Western Australia, Foundation Day is celebrated on the first Monday of June, but from Saturday to Monday there are a lot of other activities from concerts to the awarding of "The Western Australian of the Year" medals to WA born or WA residents that made the highest level of contribution to Western Australia.
The day was sunny and warm although some dark clouds loomed far away, but luckily it didn't rain.
The Park was full of young and old enjoying the outdoors. The Mucky Duck Bush Band played in the background and some people danced to the country music songs.

People queued at the food stalls, but as I had lunch at home before going, I went straight to the "Wicked" waffles van - delicious....

|A blacksmith demonstrated his craft|
|The brave could climb this wall...|
|Castledare Miniature Railway|
|Learning to milk a cow|
|Kids traditional games|
A few people came to the river with their canoes and rowed away down the Canning River.
Watching the TV news I noticed that the city's festivities were grander that my local ones of course, but I still had a lovely day out.
