Second Sunday on Main

after all the rain, then all the heat and humidity, we got a break and had a really good sunday. temps in the 70s and low humidity urged us to get out of the house and join the festivities at second sunday on main (on june 12th).

there were vendors that lined both sides of the block, but storefronts were open as well. artists and crafters sold pottery, photography and upcycled products. a couple of organizations set up tables and offered free iced tea lemonade in exchange for donation. foodwise, there weren’t as many options as we had thought: a grill cooking up hot dogs and pizza, iris book cafe was open for business, and at the end of the block was fireside pizza. nonetheless, it worked out for us because we were headed to neon’s for something fun after (more on that on the next post).

it was a beautiful day, we were glad to see so many people embracing the local event. this year, aside from the monthly theme, second sunday on main will also be featuring a lineup of local chefs, for food and wine tasting. these will be held at the falling wall condos on 1417 main street at 230pm. schedule is here.

hope to catch some of you at the next one on july 10!
