It's the opening weekend of show season.
It starts Saturday, and it just keeps rolling.
Saturday, 4/29, I'm at The Woodlands (Cemetery) at 40th & Woodland from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. This is always one of my favorite spring events -- I love Woodland Cemetery anyway, and walk there all the time, but it's a wonderful contrast, the serene graveyard and then the near-circus (literally) that's going on in front.
It's a good time.
On Sunday, I'm trying a new event called Flavors on the Avenue, also from 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. This event has existed previously, but prior to this year it was simply a restaurant festival in South Philly. This year they decided to add vendors to turn it into a proper street festival, so I hopped on board.
Let's see: nice weather, lots of food, alcohol being served on the street . . . and shopping? I'm always in favor of events that allow alcohol; it either lowers the shopping inhibition or it gives the spouses something to do while the other half shops.
I have a seriously large quantity of stuff made, so here's hoping I come home with a lot less of it.
