Tonight was a street festival of sorts downtown called Friday Fest. The first Friday of every month a bunch of vendors come and set up shop down the main downtown corridor. All sorts of fancy, and a couple really crappy, cars line the streets between trinket booths and food shops along with random bands playing up and down the street. A lot of downtown businesses stay open and there is always a good turn out.
I never buy anything. We just walk up and down the street and people watch. It is a nice way to get out of the house for free! My mom loves to pet all of the dogs that people bring.
The most interesting part this week was watching the politicians and random political groups. Every one would try to get you to wear a sticker or listen to what they had to say. Even the Green Party was there. I actually saw our Congressman there (and his challenger) which surprised me but I thought it was pretty cool. After all, they are supposed to be accessible to their constituents… right?
Do you have any festivals like this in your town? Do you go?
See Debt Run wrote Dear Diary, There’s Been a Change of Plans… I’m glad everyone was OK but it stinks about the setback in the debt payoff… if that doesn’t make you read the article I don’t know what will.
20′s Finances writes about The Actual Cost of an iPhone 5… it’s more than you think. Think thousands…
Free Money Finances hosted my guest post about Why “Six Reasons You’ll Never Retire” is Wrong. Can’t blame me for plugging my own article here. A guy at MSN wrote a piece on 6 reasons you’ll never retire and I disagree! Check it out!
So Over This wrote about Freelancing and Work-life Balance – Can They Coexist? I can definitely see this being a difficult balancing act.
Below are all of the carnivals that I was included in this week… well, at least those that I could find or I got ping backs on. If you hosted a carnival that I was included in this week and I missed it please let me know and I’ll add it below!
Enjoy your weekend!
