White Linen Night
I love outdoor community festivals. I like the crush of anonymous faces around me, the live music, the spirit of communal fun. The festival I went to today, White Linen Night in The Heights, is also special because it's a good excuse to go look at art, pottery, jewelry (my fiancé bought me a beautiful pair of pink and gold earrings that I picked out at one of the shops at the festival! At only $12, I couldn't resist), antiques, and other creative or interesting items that one doesn't see during an average shopping trip. That's one thing that makes our area of town so special — it's steeped in creativity. The photo above is of my friend's very artful art car, which took part in this year's annual Art Car Parade held here each spring.
