This past weekend Amanda, Parker and I went to the Flowertown Festival in Summerville, SC. This is from the website:
Consistently ranked one of the Top 20 events in the Southeast by the Southeast Tourism Society, the Summerville Family YMCA Flowertown Festival has been a Summerville, South Carolina tradition since 1971. The three-day event features over 200 jury-selected artists from throughout the country who display their work for sale on the beautiful grounds of Azalea Park and on Main Street. Festival attendees also enjoy delicious foods from local restaurants at the Taste of the Town, fun activities and rides for children at the Children’s Jubilee and free admission and parking.
There were THOUSANDS of people there, and hundreds of vendors, and even a fight at the Flowertown Festival. There were gymnasts and arts and crafts and polish sausages and mariachi bands and body odor. The one thing I didn’t see was a flower. Here are some of the other things we saw:
