Downtown Fun

We have a downtown
festival every week
in our town during the
summer months.
 
There are goodies to buy,
and the shop windows
are all decked out
to look at when the
people are passing by.
 
Kids play tirelessly
in the fountains.
 
 
Polished vintage cars
are on display.
 
 
 
 
And there's a bench
to sit at when you can't
walk any more.
 
 
It's a fun thing to do
in our town during these
hot summer months.

Downtown festival, every weekend. Lovely.

And BRILLIANT of the downtown merchants, to sponsor such a thing. Because I'm sure they have some part in the sponsorship, along with the city itself. Because these things, don't just happen spontaneously.

I know, because my city has downtown festivals, and they don't "just happen."

Hooray for everyone involved. Those who thought of them. Those who sponsor them. And those, who enjoy them.

Sounds like a fun place to visit. Have a great weekend.

Oh how fun, I love festivals. Those vintage cars were wonderful, too. There was a time when my daughters would see a VW Beetle and they'd yell out 'punch buggy' and I would get clobbered... lightly, of course. Those were the days... :)

Have a lovely weekend, Sheri... :)

Love it! I love looking at old cars all polished up. I am so happy people still have old cars and share them with us. :-)

Susie said...

We have a lot of Summer Fairs and Carnivals around the UK at this time of year and I love supporting our local town and community. The get-togethers are such fun ... the weather sometimes lets us down but we do our best.

Your photo's look amazing, the cars have an amazing shine too!

Hope you have a beautiful weekend Sheri

All the best Jan

What fun! I love the idea of the kiddos playing among the festivities. Makes me think of simpler times. I love the car. We have a place near where we live that hosts an old car show every Friday. I've got to get there with my camera one day.

Susan said...

Oh Sheri. That sounds like such fun! Also glad your girls have the opportunity to travel. It's an education in itself. Wonderful! Thanks so much for your visits, too. Susan

Patricia said...

A festival every week? That sounds like my kind of town, Sheri. Love the last pic - great fun. Happy weekend. xx

GOod morning my friend! It's a hot one out here finally. We've had mild weather, sunny and even stormy at times, but now that July is almost over, the humidity is starting to hit! But there's nothing more fun than to be OUT with the family and enjoy seeing the kids experience summer. Your town looks like an artistic place to be! I hope you are well, and I am praying for you - you are a dear, dear friend. XOXOX

Brandi said...

Looks like so much fun!

Dewena said...

It would be like being away on holiday every weekend in your town. I think we picked the wrong neighborhood to live in! But then, any neighborhood that sweet Sheri lived in would be a good one!

Aida said...

Oh how I love to sit on that pretty bench and watch the day go by. Don't you just love town festivals? Now I can't wait for spring to come.

Have a wonderful weekend Sheri.

Hugs,
Aida

Linda said...

Such a great post, and I love your photos! The vintage cars are absolutely gorgeous!

TARYTERRE said...

Wow that looks like such a fun festival. Between me and you, though I'd be anchored to that bench talking to a new friend. I bet it is comfy cozy too.

Becca said...

Looks like a fun summertime day! Love the bench...I'd probably have to sit there for a bit. :-)

bj said...

ahhh...I love all these great photos...and especially those blue cars. :)

Jennifer said...

My hubby and I always joke that, if we win the lottery, we are going to buy an antique car. I love them!
We have a Farmer's Market here which is similar in that it has a festival feel. I love the fresh produce, home-style baking and cut flowers at a price that is hard to resist.

Jackie said...

Thank you for the visit to my blog and for the sweet comment you left me.
I hope that your daughter's teaching career is filled with blessings. To me, teaching is a calling from The Lord, and I loved teaching. I retired after 33 years, but I truly believe that a teacher always has " chalk dust in her(his) veins. "
Thank you again for your visit and kind comment.
Hugs,
Jackie

Hello thanks for visiting my blog and your message. I very much enjoyed your post with all the colourful festival photos and will drop in from time to time to see what you are up to! Have fun :-)

Beatrice Euphemie said...


I just love old fashioned, down-town festivals and yours looks wonderful, Sheri! Loving that little blue car and the park bench! I could do some damage in those shops, too! Enjoy your week! Hugs xo Karen

Dearest Sheri! HELLO! I just saw your comment on my blog. I would most definitely see RIA in the Netherlands, but do you know who The Dutchess is? She and I go way back to when I first started to blog. She is just the most gentle and creative, witty and funny human being. She is very special, and if I went there, I'd have to see her AND Ria, Madelief, and a few other friends! YES!

I hope to connect with you very soon my beloved friend. LOVE!

Hey, girlfriend! Aren't you lucky to have such a town! I love those vintage cars. Man, they're gorgeous! And that bench is awesome! Take care, dear Sheri!

marcia pilar said...

Glad to hear you're enjoying your summer, my friend.
Yes, I decided to stick it out in the land of blog after all.
Two difficult weeks, but I pressed on.
Guess what helped me? You...and Love, of course. :)
Have you read St Therese's Story of a Soul? Beautiful.
xoxo
