I was lucky enough to be on staff for the Festival for 4 years. I know all the work that goes into this event, and that just makes me love it even more.
I was so happy to be able to share the Festival with Jack this year. We took him last year, but he slept through most of it and was too little to really enjoy much of it. This year, he loved it, and I wish we had more time to enjoy it! We went on Wednesday evening and had enough time to check out the new Myriad Gardens (amazing- can’t wait until it’s all finished!), go to Face Painting (or arm painting in Jack’s case), play in Creation Station, get a balloon and get some dinner. Jack LOVED my Indian Taco- he insisted on eating that rather than ice cream. He made a huge mess but liked it so much, I didn’t even care.
The weather was gorgeous, and we had a really fun family night at the Festival. The weekend got busy, then rainy, so unfortunately we didn’t make it back, but what a great night. I hope Jack grows to love Festival as much as we do!
