NW Folklife Fest - Seattle May 2010
it just happened that i got to go to the NW Folklife Fest in Seattle on Sat. It sent my mind straight back to some of the folk-type festivals of my past, esp. since we were greeted at the entrance (at Seattle Center) by several young guys looking for people to sign the petition to legalize marijuana, which sadly i could not sign because i'm an alien when i'm up here.
there were street bands....
there were booths selling all manner of stuff, lots of which was imported from South America. Zylie was intrigued by several different offerings including stuffed critters, jewelry - the non-precious rocks kind, baskets. she shows signs of being an intense shopper! her dad and brother show extreme patience as they await her purchase decisions.
there were also many food booths where we got some nourishment.
the whole reason i amtrak-ed north this weekend was that for mother's day Chris got tickets to Stars on Ice for me, him and the kids. it's been years since i've been to one of these shows and i really love going! so it was a real treat! a very sweet son he is!
