It's been a wet and relatively dull weekend. We had hoped to go to ComFest for more Fair Fare, cheap trinkets and free concerts, however, it was raining on and off all weekend. I rather stay home and vegetate than to brave the elements with my three wild boys.
ComFest, also known as "Commie-Fest" is a community festival that was started in the '70s and has stayed the same for over 30 years. Think lots of tie-dye, incense, beaded necklaces and cheap crafts. Also beer, wine and bands in a park setting. It is Columbus's version of Woodstock. It is also the same weekend as Gay Pride; I think we have the 3rd or 4th largest Pride gathering with over 90,000 expected to attend. While I love a good Gay Pride Parade combined with a lovely Hippie Festival, I am not a big fan of crowds and fighting for parking. Throw in rain and I'm staying home. Maybe next year....
Anyway, today we finally saw our first Hummingbird after having the feeders out for a couple of weeks. My favorite Lily's have started to open up. I believe they are a variety of Stargazer Lilies. The 4th of July is our next chance for some local color. Perhaps we'll go to the Doo-Dah parade!
