Park Ave Fest Day 1

Today kicks off the 35th Annual Park Avenue Festival.  We woke up shortly before 10am this morning, and left the apartment around 10:30am.  We walked to Alexander Street, which is at one end of the festival, and then made our way to Culver Street in the opposite direction, which is the other end of the festival.  There are so many booths with interesting crafts.  Kelly bought a little plastic star to fill with colorful sand (as part of a church’s fundraiser) and then she bought a bamboo plant.

Kelly and her star.

Dillon bought some fudge from Stever’s for his family.  Yes, there is quite a variety of goods here, and we haven’t even gotten to the festival food yet.  For lunch, Daniel had fried calamari, Kelly had coconut shrimp and fries, and Dillon had nachos with a cheeseburger.  I opted to find something at the apartment that was NOT fried.  For dessert, Kelly and I bought some Abbott’s custard.  It was phenomenal.

Daniel went to work at the comic store dressed as (wait for it!) The Thing from the Fantastic Four.

It's unsettling.

Matt was dressed as Captain America.  I helped him accessorize by finding a shield.  He attracted a lot of attention.  Tonight we will go to his house to play poker and drink.  It’s been a good festival so far.  I think Kelly and Dillon have enjoyed it, but they are currently splayed out on our apartment floor, exhausted.

This was all Kelly could get when I tried to take a picture with Matt. Her hilarious inability to use a digital camera still amazes me.
