A Photo Essay of the Feast of the Flowering Moon Waking up in Chillicothe

Getting fancy for the dance.

Chillicothe — I explored the “Feast of the Flowering Moon” as the event awoke in Yoctangee Park and the downtown Friday in my previous story.

Aside from a couple of interviews, I caught a few of the sights – among the festival food, fancy dancers, tables of trinkets and treasures, midway rides, ponies and canoes…including the Pump House, which shares the park.

Here is the resulting photo essay.
