This weekend was the 40th anniversary of the Inman Park Festival and Tour of Homes. It’s a big deal and we take it very seriously around here. I was so outrageously excited about the festival this year I woke on Saturday singing Hail Thee Festival Day*. Seriously. Who does that?
This was (sadly) the first year I volunteered and it was a blast! I had SO much fun and worked with a very nice group of people. And the beer captain is a friend of mine so that made volunteering even better! The ability to volunteer for the festival really made me feel differently about my neighborhood – proud, happy, and involved. duh
The festival is a typical festival – yummy food that’ll clog your arteries, artwork, photography, arts, crafts – but as the kids get older and enjoy it more I enjoy it more. This year was the best festival yet!
Little Mister insisted on having his face painted and who am I to argue about that? He was very proud of his fire breathing dragon. It was really cute before getting smudged.
He danced the weekend away with his friends and was the honorary musician while the Squirrelheads played on Sunday.
Q Man and husband hung out under a tree and giggled.
I was happy to hang out with friends and enjoy a beer
I also walked the festival fifteen times, bought the 40th Anniversary t-shirts, cool artwork (this and this) and after wanting it for THREE years I finally bought my pink propane pig!
* I have to admit that it’s one of my favorite hymns.
