Repost from 7/6/17~ Another fun Summer activity we love to enjoy. We try to go all 3 nights. Last year we had no fireworks at all due to the Pandemic. Every year during the 4th of July weekend Iowa City has a Jazz Festival. I have now lived 12 summers here and I have only been to the actual festival once. I have been to many the last night during the last 30 minutes to watch the firework display. This year the weather was beautiful and Todd and I have been trying to get out and do things together again so we went to the festival the first night. We typically go out to dinner on Fridays and thought it would be great to go downtown and have dinner then to listen to some jazz. The next day we decided to do the same thing since we did not have Taj. This time we also brought along some veggies from our garden, hummus, and some grapes to snack on. We picked up a sandwich from culinary row and then ate our veggies as well. We saw many other folks bringing food as well and reading mate
Repost from 7/12/2017 ~ I honestly hope we ha e enough people vaccinated where we do have the Blues & BBQ Festival. It was canceled last year among many other events. My husband and I love going and listening to the music. This past weekend my husband and I enjoyed another festival in our corridor dealing with music and food. The weekend prior was Jazz and this past weekend was the Blues. This is our third year enjoying North Liberty's Blues & BBQ Festival. The weather was hot during the day so we opted to wait for evening. The weather cooled down some and the band's were great and the food, well let's just say Todd went to a couple of different vendors. This will be one of our annual festivals as long as weather permits. The moonlight was beautiful that night. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset. It was a very good weekend for me. What did you do last weekend?
