If you are looking for something different to do next June I highly recommend Vulcon days. We had a blast walking around the small tidy town and embracing the Vulcan way for just a day. It seemed everybody in the town whether you lived there or were visiting for the day got wooed into the Star Trek world.
We started out at the Free pancake breakfast, which was fantastic except for the unexplainable blue eggs..needless to say I passed on those. We then headed over to main street to secure our spots for the parade. The parade lasted an impressive 45 mins which was really unexpected for a small town of 2000 residence. Klingon’s, trembles, and a giant replica of the star ship enterprise made their appearance along with candy pelting blue people instead of the clowns. A fitting substitution considering the star trek theme. The parade ended with whoops and cheers from the large crowd as Henry the old man scootered his way to end of the street, orange flag waving in the wind he bid us farewell. We think he was let out of the home on a day pass.
Heading to the middle of main street in a cut out parking lot was the free bbq lunch, karaoke, a blow up fun centre for the kiddlettes, and tattoos. My crew and I could not resist getting air brushed tattoo’s that read ” Dammit Jim!” With our tattoo’s completed we headed to the Trek shop, which is located at the beginning of main street. The shop itself was filled to the brim with Star trek stuff from shirts to mugs to mouse pads to books to stickers to everything else Star Trek related. The shop rounded out our day and we headed back to our planet of Calgary.
Hot weather, free food, parade, tattoos, entertainment, and shopping what more could you want!
