zucchini festival!

so this past weekend was the long-awaited [in the Berkshires at least] West Stockbridge Zucchini Festival... DJ and I open and closed the festival down [we went home and napped in between]. The festival was tons of fun including a pet-parade... which unfortunately due to lazy parents and his large and in charge stature [he wouldn't fit into his costume and we forgot to set an alarm and got there like 15 minutes too late to register him] Oliver was not in... but he made a parade of his own as everyone was gushing over him as we walked him around...

I wish I had taken pictures of the food [OH THE FOOD] - I mean, come on, clearly the best part of any festival was the food but I was too busy stuffing my face to take any pictures of anything we ate. 

What's that? What did we eat? The better question would be what DIDN'T we eat... we opened the zucchini fries booth [ate two servings that day], cotton candy, two different types of egg/spring rolls [no, don't think they had zucchini in them but they were damn good], and then closed the zucchini fries station and bought their last fried dough [for a $1 heck yes]... needless to say I went for a long run on Sunday to burn off some of that zucchini goodness! 

Anyways here are some pictures of our fun zucchini saturday....

zucchini-hippie-hula-hoop-dancers [?? welcome to the berkshires...] I can't decide who's my favorite lime-green-tank-no-bras-allowed or grandma-white-pants-red-heels-get-it-girl.... 


what do you think? [other than I'm an ass, haha]

dressed up zucchinis...

with zucchini [not really but I can pretend] hot air balloons....

[it was so cool to see this hot air balloon up close and personal]

with some zucchini lovers...

on a beautiful night in a truly beautiful place...

there were also fireworks that night which were zucch-a-refic but we were in the car and it was chilly and I was to lazy to get out and take pictures at that point... hope you enjoyed that zucch-recap! I'm off to daydream about fried dough and cotton candy....
