Pilot Point Carnival 2017 Day 2

We awoke this morning with the excitement of Carnival Day 2! The day started off with breakfast at 9am. With the band playing till late last night a lot of people mosied in and out till about noon for breakfast. We had very yummy biscuits and gravy with an egg. After breakfast we eagerly awaited the plane drop! 

The plane drop is where a small local aircraft flies over us and drops candy, and cardboard money! While the weather is pretty chilly today (4 with wind chill), that didn’t stop the whole village coming out and standing on our frozen lake waiting for the plane to fly over head. 

Once the plane came it was a frenzy of running in waist deep snow trying to grab as many card board pieces as possible! The card board pieces have money about a wrote on each one. 

The pilot flew over about 5 times, scattering bags of cardboard money and candy. Everyone was racing to fill their bags! 

It was so much fun and laughter echoed off the snow covered banks! I’m proud to say that I walked away with $21.21 as well as a free soda! Ben with just a little less but a free pretzel and a free smile! 

The next activity is smelting, but with out homdas or snow machines it’s to hard for us to get out to the smelting ponds so we are sitting this one out. We don’t really mind considering it has started to snow and blow more. 

After that we had a relaxing night until dinner. Yummy Turkey legs and corn on the cob! Such a great dinner followed by a live band and dancing! 

We danced the night away till about midnight. Not to many pics since it was pretty dark in our gym. 

Day 2 was a great success and we’re ready for the events tomorrow on our last day!
