So much going on today and this weekend, it would be impossible to list it all.
Let's give it a small try though.
The Spiedie Fest is right up at the top. Everyone needs to go at least once in their life. It started out as a festival to celebrate the Spiedie, a local food specialty. (I'll be booed out of existence but I will come clean and say that I am not a fan of spiedie sandwiches-I find them dry and almost inedible.) but the spiedies themselves-yum.
Then, partially thanks to local mover Ron Rogers the Spiediefest became just as much a hot air balloon rally.
Then, they added music. And "meet and greets". Now, it is one powerful festival. I was hoping to go this year with an out of town friend but it wasn't meant to be.
Tonight is also First Friday. If I go it will probably be to see a "Parrot Safari".
Tomorrow? Well, the Vestal library is having its annual book sale/farmers market/Iris sale. There won't be any parking but we'll probably end up over there anyway. After all, no Otsiningo Park market due to the Spiediefest (as far as I know.)
Maybe this year I won't try to buy more irises that I really don't need. But they are so tempting. Anyone want some of our spares?
The one "bummer" about this weekend is because of the closing of Otsiningo Park to non-Spiedie Fest events, we won't be able to access our community garden plots. Those luscious tomatoes will have to wait.
Well, that's what I get for trying to write a post in an insomniac moment. zzzzz. I'll leave this for now, and hopefully will report later on an interesting weekend.
