Yep we have had a few festivals around the area. Among these include the Iron City Festival, Come See Me, and Spring Fling. There are still many more to come over the next few months.
It’s a great time and a great way to socialize and mingle, see folks you normally don’t see, and simply have fun.
Now I believe festivals are good and perfect for socializing and mingling. However, I’m not a fan of them. They block up traffic for days, it’s a nightmare to find parking, and you can honestly find many of the things a festival offers in most cities on a given weekend. I do obviously like when a race is involved and these are good for my #imjustdrew stuff. Beyond that, I know better ways of achieving my socializing, including sporting events and the county fair.
So I encourage any and all to do festivals, especially if you have small kids. Just don’t expect me to tag along.
