Our summer temperatures average around 100 degrees with some days reaching 110 and others in the low 90s. Given that, you can imagine my surprise that our city was planning a street faire from 5-9PM on an August evening. City staff was worried that it would be unbearably hot and that no one would show up, but they pursued their plans anyway. As the day approached, it looked like cooler weather was in store, and miraculously, the high this day was in the low 80s. It was by far the coolest day of the summer.
Most local businesses, non-profit organizations and service clubs had booths and activities for the whole family. There were kittens and dogs available for adoption from our local shelter, face-painting, a giant slide in the middle of the street, and numerous food booths.
So we decided to join in the fun and take the girls downtown. They had a great time and kept thanking us over and over again after we got home. The proof is in the pictures!
