Mountain View Art & Wine Festival

I love summer street festivals: the live music, the artists and vendors, the people-watching. What I love most is the food. For me summer isn’t summer until I’ve had my chicken-on-a-stick, kettle korn, and frozen lemonade.
Some years we’re not able to get out to many, but this year somehow we managed to attend a bunch. The 4th of July Rose, White & Blue Parade in San Jose. The Fillmore Jazz Festival in San Francisco. The San Jose Salsa Festival. The Palo Alto Festival of the Arts. Tapestry Arts Festival in San Jose. Whew! And still there are many we missed.

But Labor Day has come and gone, the kids are back in school, and the summer festival season seems just about over. So might as well send it off with a bang: the Mountain View Art & Wine Festival is this weekend. It seems always to be the last festival of the season, but it’s always grand even if it does leave me a little wistful.

Head on over if you missed your chance to swing dance in a normally-busy intersection. While I’m sad to see the summer end, it’s time to look forward to the indoor fall festivals. Fudge Lady, save a slab for me!
