What an absolutely beautiful weekend we had here in central Florida! Blue skies, bright sun, and a temperature of about 75. Perfect! Probably had something to do with the thousands of festival goers that descended on Old Homosassa. Only one way in and out which creates amazing traffic backups!
We usually ride our bikes down to the festival bright and early so we can check out the displays before the hoards of people get here. (Maggie has to stay home since NO DOGS allowed.) But this year we were running late and didn’t get there until after noon. The masses were already there and more were streaming in.
After checking out the art and crafts and peeking into the long lines at the food stands, we decided to head out to the Freezer and get shrimp instead. We usually don’t go to the Freezer on the weekend because it is jammed, but figured everyone had to be at the festival. We were wrong. The Freezer was crazy busy with no tables or seats open along the bar. So we went home and finished up the leftovers from Friday night. Which were really good since we had made panko-encrusted grouper and the fish came from our local fresh seafood house–Shelley’s Seafood in Old Homosassa. Yum!
Here’s some pics from the festival.
It looks like the festival was a success again this year. It’s great for the local economy because so many people visit from Tampa and St. Pete and get to see what Old Homosassa has to offer.
