It has been several years since I have missed the festival. This year I have to work, the whole weekend. I will miss the fun under the beer tent. Please everyone have one for the "Team". :)

My plans are changing hourly - but probably tomorrow. If you want to get a jump start on the performer schedule - go to http://www.americanfolkfestival.com/ That should allow you to check everyone out.

Woot! Greek food and if you like it - maybe a few of us should think about the Greek Ball this winter........great food, dance and drinks. Those Gyros are awesome.

Hope to catch a few of you down there. Mainiac1957 would set his tent if he could - Brad - enjoy!

Kathie and I had the Greek food tonight. It was great! Spanikopita, A huge gyro wrap, Baklava, and a fresh squeezed lemonade for 14 bucks. A good deal at festival prices. We were there for kick off and saw J.P. Cormier. I will see him again, fantastic artist. See some of you tomorrow......

Busy weekend for me unfortunately . . . splitting firewood, building a hearth and doing who knows what else . . . Fall comes too early this time of year.

The good news . . . I did help inspect the Folk Festival so you folks should be safe. ;):D Well, maybe not so safe next to the one vendor who had issues with his gas-fired fryolator and was asking me if I knew anything about how to fix it. ;):D

I love Greek food! We're going to have to make an effort to make this festival next year. Sheesh! I remember that when we left Turkey in 1986, we were buying Baklava for $1 a KILO (2.2 pounds!)

Wow! and the Baklava was to die for! not dry at all! It was a great weekend. (other than the sun, which I had an issue about b/c of antibiotics I'm on) we had a great time! I hope you caching weekend went well too!:D

I was there for parts of all three days. Saw some really good acts and had some good food. The crowds wern't too bad for the most part, but busy non the less. Got to run into quite a few people I knew which I always find interesting.
