You have to love small town festivals. We went to one in Ithaca (just down the road from my parents really) on Saturday and enjoyed it. There was a local marching band/orchestra playing, clowns doing balloons, bed races, the firehouse put out their hose for the kids to play in, vendors and food, pie eating and hot dog eating contests -- just fun stuff. Megan's favorite part, we had to literally carry her away -- ok I had to -- was the bubble machine set up outside one of the downtown stores. The clowns freaked her out but she did like the balloon dog they made her. It was fun.
