End of summer street fairs

I love street fairs and sort of public festivals that include free admission, food vendors, and small independent retailers that you can negotiate prices with. It's a great way to discover and support small businesses that are trying to get their name out.

This weekend I decided to visit a local street fair with a couple of friends. We found a really good local Italian ice place that had over 80 flavors of ice and we also spotted some cute vendors. One was a business that sold preservative-free doggie treats that look like real human food like empanadas, personal pizza pies, and tacos. At another vendor, my friend was able to find a pocket watch with the mockingjay symbol on it which true Hunger Games fans will find very symbolic.

It was a cloudy morning but a beautiful sunny afternoon. Afterwards, we spent some time outside enjoying each other's company.

With perfect weather and good company, who doesn't love a good street fair?
