The end of summer would not be the same without the annual Harrisburg Kipona Festival. The event was named after a Delaware Indian term meaning bright, sparkling water.

So early this morning, Chief grabbed his leash, and me the camera and headed off to see what was up a few hours prior to the event opening.
