People Watching

It's street fair time again! We spent Saturday perusing the streets of Mt. Vernon during their annual Tulip Festival street fair. Booths stretch the length of about 6 city blocks and are filled with every imaginable form of "art" or "craft". But I think I had more fun watching the people.
The new generation of Republicans! :)

This woman is truly an artist. Her face paintings were spectacular. I had a hard time tearing myself away from the rhythm and blues this gentleman was pumping out. He played a mean dobro!



Wish I had a video of this. Her "puppets" were dancing to the VERY loud music playing on the stage to her right.

Let's not forget the fair food--Phad Thai, satay and spring roll...can't get much better than that.

And of course there is the wildlife!


But the best treat of all was rounding the end of the row of booths and discovering Jenny Lommers, our dear friend who used to work at Homax with Wally. She and her family recently moved to Corvalis, so we don't get to see her often and didn't know she was going to be here. What a treat! And her art is fabulous! We miss you, Jenn!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Mt. Vernon holds many memories from years past while living on Camano Island. Are the tulips still blooming?
I do like face painting...it's not permanent and it's fun!
