TheTeams are lined up side by side along main Street after parading into Lakeside to the ringing of the church bell. The spectators get a chance to see the teams close up and talk to the mushers at this lunch stop on Saturday. After about 45 minutes of rest, water and a snack, the dogs had enough of this rest stuff and start howling to go again, the rest of the stay is very noisy!
