Wordless Wednesday: Festivals

It is once again festival season here in Philadelphia! Yay! I so love a good festival.

This past Saturday, Husband and I headed to Rittenhouse Row Spring Fest, which used to be my favoritest of the festivals. This year was different though. Instead of tons of vendors selling foods and crafts and beer and cocktails, it was mostly advertisers! A tent selling internet. Three different bank tents. A half dozen gym-type tents selling memberships. Additionally, there were a fraction of the vendors that there usually are. Bummer. We still had a good time though!

From there, we wandered over to Headhouse South Street Maifest, where there were BLOCKS of drinking around a maypole, tons of food carts and vendors, and a generally better vibe (albeit way more crowded!) than the first festival. Of course, at that point we’d been walking around for hours already and we were hot and tired, so we walked through it to check it all out but didn’t stay. I did manage to snap the pic above, though! If this festival is held on the same day as others again next year, I’ll know to start here! (Plus, it’s way closer to my new house, so that makes it a big plus!)

This coming weekend is Art Star Craft Bazaar at Penn’s Landing, which we also go to every Mother’s Day weekend. It is filled with tons of talented artisans and their handmade crafts- so I obviously love it!

Are there any festivals or fun things you look forward to in your town every year?
