If, like most people, you're a fan of tribal dancing, exotic cuisine and little kids walking on water inside of giant plastic bubbles, then the city of Ormond Beach's 24th-annual Native American Fest, Friday through Sunday, Jan. 25-27, at The Casements was for you.

Laura Alcorn and Little Big Mountain, from GoNativeNow.com, a Native American education and entertainment program, gave presentations and answered questions about Native American life, including hunting strategies and marriages.

There was also face-painting, games, reptile and other wildlife exhibits, Aztec dancers, demonstrations on traditional Native American culture and more than 30 trading booths.

To top it all off, presentations on how falcons and hawks used to be used for hunting were put on, as well, with live demonstrations of the birds spotting and attacking their prey.
