Whoa, that was one hot stretch of weather and from all indications we’re poised to embark on yet another heat wave in the coming week, though I do not believe the ever-popular Heat Index is likely to reach the triple figures of the past week
Don’t get me wrong, I am way ok with it given the time it took us to get past the lingering long-lasting and merciless winter months. But now those 80 some degree days with a little breeze now and then might find folks escaping the air conditioning and venturing out a bit.
Did you catch a parade yet? Well one of the best ones in the area will take place in Croton Saturday beginning at noon with activities for young and not so young at the American Legion Post and the Croton campground. It’s an election year so it should be prime candy collecting time along the parade route.
Friday and Saturday is the Lakeshore Art Festival in Muskegon with over 300 juried fine art and specialty craft exhibitors, children’s activities, specialty food items, street performers, multiple interactive art stations, and more.
Ms. Lil and I made a little trip over to our Metro area to the west this week and took in a few of the kayak sculptures being displayed downtown as well as having an epic breakfast at Carmen’s Cafe (more to come on this find in a later story) and a stroll through the Farmer’s market. The sculptures are impressive, display some humor and are a nice addition to the downtown area.
The event is gearing up to be a big one and will run Friday from 10am- 8pm and Saturday from 10am- 6pm.
Should you visit the festival there would be ample time to get back to our area for the annual Freedom Fest celebration on the causeway in Croton with live music, a beer tent and food on tap. Festivities begin at 6pm when they close off the causeway and start the party.
