These guys play at the Children’s Fair every year. Their music isn’t CD worthy, but they play with gusto. Forget all that… get a load of their shoes. Fantastic.
I spent Halloween, from 10-4 anyway, working at a children’s fair. Michael Curry, the amazing puppet guy from the Lion King and Olympics fame) had a display at the fair. His workshop is out near where we live. Pretty cool eh? Anyway… the fair is cool. I’ve worked there every year, save one, of the tens years I’ve been in my job. It’s a great thing. Love seeing all the kids and all the adults working the fair giving to the kids of the community. Our phrase to remember? “You can have one big bead, and as many little beads as you like.”
The Mississippi Avenue Street Fair is quite the deal nowadays. Who knew. We’d actually never been, and let me tell you… loads of people. It was pretty cool actually. Good food, decent vendors with all sorts of goods and art for sale. We ended up buying three fairly large pots for the area in the back of our place we’ve been working on. These pots were/are cool and we got them at a decent price. Or at least we feel like we did.
