2 weekends of summer left! Doesn't that hurt?
We must enjoy every second possible over the next 10 days to enjoy our limited amount of time left until life returns to a more regular schedule, such as school and work, and no care free time.
In that spirit, please join me with the animals this wknd. We'll start on the eastside at the St. Mary's Festival in my hometown of Canandaigua Fri. night. There's a midway with rides and games for the kids, a beer truck and gambling (by decree of the Lord) for the adults, and the world famous Cake Booth, where you can win your choice of delicious homemade cakes by plopping down a measly quarter. Who doesn't love cake?
Then Sat., head for the 3rd annual Fairport Music & Food Festival which benefits Golisano Children's Hospital. 4 stages of live music from local faves like Jumbo Shrimp, the Campbell Bros., Brass Taxi, Tommy Brunett and many more scattered around the Erie Canal. Meet up with us at Mulconry's Irish Pub on Liftbridge Lane.
Sun., head for the westside for the Abruzzese Festival, celebrating Italian heritage at Gates Memorial Park near Lyell and Spencerport Rd. Lou Gramm performs Sunday night at 8:30. I know my man Mario Daniele and his cuginos will take good care of you.
Or head to the North Coast of America Sun. and join me at Olies along the river to meet the real animals on Dog Day Afternoon. My beautiful pal Sarah McKeon wil help rescue more cute little pups. Here's how to join her:
