A couple years ago I headed up to the annual Rendezvous in Poway. The event is held in historic Old Poway Park.
The Rendezvous in Poway is a reenactment that includes many elements of the 19th century Old West, including costumed vaqueros, mountain men, cowboys, pioneers, and soldiers from the Civil War.
This morning, as I went through some folders in my computer, I found one that I had named Old Poway Park. In it were various photos of the park.
Uh, oh! Yikes!
I had intended to blog those photos a day or two after the event!
My lousy memory being what it is, I thought it would be best to merely share a few photos I took of this very colorful historic park–I don’t recall most of the precise details.
I do remember that there was grass and picnic benches and shady trees, and excited kids waving as they rode along the short, looping track of the Poway-Midland Railroad, and that the Heritage Museum contained a great collection of artifacts and displays concerning Poway’s history. But I’m afraid these almost forgotten photos will simply provide a taste of my visit that day.
If you want to learn more about family-friendly Old Poway Park, its history, museum, fascinating buildings and railroad operations, visit their website here!
One day I’ll return to ride that steam locomotive train you see in the barn. The little kid in me cannot be denied.
