Springfield Festivals

 Springfield and the surrounding areas host many festivals this time of year. Before heading out to Maine Labor Day weekend Dan and I checked out the Birthplace of Route 66 Festival in downtown Springfield featuring a car show, food, music and craft vendors.

Dan's Favorite Convertible (although I think it's a bit small for him!)

 Last weekend we went back to the Mizumoto Japanese Gardens with some friends to check out the Japanese Fall Festival. In contrast to our first trip to the gardens when we didn't see a single other person this time the gardens were packed! There were food stands and craft stands selling various Oriental goods and art. We had fun walking around and exploring and were treated to some interesting Japanese drum music and a dragon dance.

This coming weekend we're planning to checkout the Springfield Cider Days which is about four blocks from our house - should be a good time!
