Vintage Trailers + Lunch on Main

August, in Trent Hills, is a time for celebration, with events and festivals happening every weekend. On the third Sunday of the month, the Warkworth Business Association hosts the Long Lunch, where tables are literally setup along Main Street, for the entire community to gather for lunch. It's the event of the season, really. But what a great idea right?

The sun was shining and the village was buzzing with locals and visitors enjoying a summer afternoon filled with delicious food (hooray for corn season), live music, art installations, a handmade market, and a row of vintage campers lining the street for all to gush over.

One of my closest friends, and favourite people ever, Raquilda of The Village Pantry, had the brilliant idea of gathering the ladies from Girl Camp Canada, for a vintage trailer show and shine. The ladies, and one adorable 9 year old, hauled their campers from around the province, to our little town. What a treat to see the work they put into their trailers. Girl Camp Canada is basically a group of all-Canadian women who are passionate about the hunt for the perfect vintage camper, and restoring it to their hearts content. They're all about "friendship and being able to enjoy the safety and fun of vintage-trailer camping together".

I'll just go ahead, and let the photos tell the story

.... also, who the heck ever said small towns were sleepy?

"This community of eight hundred, which is home to artisans, musicians, potters and farmers, is set in a valley of rich farmland in the beautiful Northumberland Hills. The street is blocked off and tables are stretched out to accommodate the hundreds who gather so that the community can celebrate and enjoy the bounty of the region. " - WBA
