Three different venues make up this week's blog. A firemen's parade, a birthday party for a dog, and our annual visit with Arts in the Mountains on the campus of Saint Francis University, Loretto, PA. The concerts at Arts in the Mountains are combined as one set of photographs although they were taken on Friday and Saturday nights.

As part of the 88th annual convention of the Volunteer Firemen's Association of Cambria & Vicinity, the Ashville Volunteer Fire Company, Ashville, Cambria County, PA held a firemen's parade on Saturday, 1 August 2009.

The firemen's parade in Ashville worked it's way south on Route 36 completely cutting off all traffic flow through town.

Conemaugh Fire Department marching unit participated in the hour long parade.

The Red Knights, a national motorcycle organization made up of volunteer and paid firemen, rode in the parade for the first time.

Also held on Saturday was a birthday party for Buddy the dog, which was attended by about 80 of his doggy buddies and their human pets.

Buddy, in the birthday hat, poses with six of his good friends during the birthday party held in honor of his fourteenth birthday.

Not invited to the party, but watching thru a car window, was this pretty looking Papillon.
