South Street Spring Festival 2013

Another beautiful day.

Another fun outing in the city.

Today, Charles & I met up with my brother & his girlfriend down at the South Street Spring Festival. This was our first time  at this particular South Street event and I am so happy we went because we had a blast.

Charles & I biked down there to meet Michael & Joan and it was just the perfect weather to spend the day outside. A little hot at times, but I’m not complaining. I was able to wear shorts & get some sun on my legs so it was a good day!

There were SO MANY people out today, it was a little packed, but mainly in a fun way. South Street was closed down for the day  so over 30 restaurants & bars were able to set up shop out on the street for everyone to enjoy.

We started off our Spring Festival journey with a beer. It was so nice walking around outside checking out the sights enjoying a cold beer. I heart springtime in the city.

We then decided to check out some of the food options – first we shared The Picnic Biscuit from Supper which was cold fried chicken, creamy corn relish & house pickles on a biscuit. It was gooooood.

Next up we had a Asian style BBQ pulled pork sandwich from Ela which was my favorite meal of the day – paired with my favorite spring/summer beer – a Summer Shandy. Lots of yum happening here.

While we were eating & drinking our way through the festival, we enjoyed the live music on the different streets. I really enjoyed the School of Rock kids {in the top picture below} they were so talented – the guitar player was amazing and the lead singer was so so good. It was fun to watch the kids put on an amazing show.

Hi Mom!

hi mom festival

The Festival was held on South Street between 2nd & 8th Streets so we were able to walk down towards the Delaware River & check out the sights down there too. It was literally the most perfect day to enjoy a festival, I can’t get over how great the weather has been the past few days/weeks. We’ve had a lovely spring!

Just to let you know, I was mildly obsessed with the May Day pole. I think I took 100 pictures of it.

So pretty!

Fun sightings today also include: My new favorite children’s book. A word to all my pregnant friends/those already with kids, expect to see this book on your doorstep. Frickin’ hilarious. And this random ghost buster sign – I had to look up the meaning of Ghost Ridin’ Tha Whip – but now I consider myself properly informed on the topic.
