Floyd Fandango

Summer is such a fun and busy time for us, i just can't keep up with this blog. So again, i am trying to play catch up, with a few back posts.

Fourth of July Weekend was spent at the Floyd Fandango Beer and Wine festival. This is a local event, located at the same beautiful grounds as the Floydfest. We were given weekend passes for volunteering a few hours time helping to park cars for Sequoia's School PTA.

Most of our time was spent here, at the Children's Universe. They had a nice area for the kids, with swing sets, a wooden ship play structure and large covered sandbox. The area was fenced in, so the parents could kick back and enjoy the music, while the kids played. We got to sample some beer and wine from the local breweries and wineries, and also enjoyed a Dogtown pizza made from local organic ingredients cooked on a traveling woodfired oven. Yum!

The kids played.

and played.

We brought bubbles and extra wands, which are always a big hit!

Sage loved the music, and stopped to shake her booty every now and again.

The kids couldn't resist rolling down this big grassy hill near the second stage. There lots of space for just running around and enjoying the atmosphere of the festival.

After leaving Fandango, we headed into Floyd to watch the fireworks at the annual 4th of July town celebration. It is your classic small town community celebration, sitting out on blankets at the high school grounds. Live music (provided by the local churches), food venders, face painting, games for the kids and of course fireworks.
