Talk of the Towns: Festival After Festival
When I was growing up, one of my favorite thing to do with my family was go to whatever festival there was to attend on weekends. Japanese Festival, Apple Festival, Founder’s Day… you name it, we went there. And now, here in Lincoln, there seems to be something to celebrate every single day!
Two weekends ago we had the pleasure of attending Barketoberfest, sponsored by the Placer County SPCA. There were dog shows, dog vendors, and even a dog obstacle course. They even had a costume contest with categories like Best Couple costume with the owners! My favorite was the lady dressed up like Cruella de Vil, who had put her pug into a cow costume to look like a Dalmatian. A winner in my book for sure.
After that we went over to the Fall Fest at the corner of 193 and Sierra College. More vendors, more food, but THIS time, they had a pumpkin farm to boot. They even had a baby pumpkin launching station, which we almost got creamed by since my husband insisted on parking in the neighboring parking lot and walking because “it’s not that far.” Anyway, the woman who put it on is the same great lady who puts on Gypsy Chic once a month on Flocchini Circle. An entire warehouse full of things you didn’t know you needed until right that second. You absolutely must check it out!
Dia de los Muertos
THIS WEEKEND, if you’re looking for something to do, you absolutely must come out to the Dia de los Muertos event at Beermann’s Plaza in downtown Lincoln. There will be dancers and crafts, food and presentations, fun and more fun! It’s an evening event, so wear LOTS of layers… in other words, hats, gloves, scarves, etc. I’ll see you there!
Happiest of birthdays to my favorite director (I never play favorites… ok, yes I do) Mike Mechanick, my twinsie cousins Melissa & Jenny, my cousin in law Clint Martinez, mother to my favorite pageant queen MaryAnne Sapio, auntie Coco Bradley, the ever effervescent Julia Speediaci, the ever salty uncle Bobby Pothier, my secret twin Autumn Ellis, my traveling buddy Colleen Short, and last but not least, Keith Doherty.
I LOVE YOU ALL!!!
