Friday evening. I am just back in from a walk with Maggie Doone and the town is hopping. Maybe something to do with the full moon. Dan Voll is playing to a good sized crowd at the Green Turtle and all of the bars up and down Center Street seem to be drawing a good crowd with lots of live music to be heard.
It is either the full moon or there are just a lot of people in town for the local events. The Book Festival is in full swing and the Addison is hosting keynote author Jamie Ford of “Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet” fame. Saturday starts off with the Farmer’s Market just a block from the Addison. The Market is followed by the Chili Competition which is on Third Street with Karl Davis playing to entertain the crowds as they sample chili from over 35 competitors. Follow that with Happy Hour at the Addison and a nice dinner out and you have a full day of fun.
It doesn’t hurt that the weather is gorgeous. We have been waiting for days like this all through January. 70 degrees and nothing but sunshine. That is why we live in Florida! Well, nothing but sunshine except at night when we have a full moon. Aroooo!
