City: Auburn, Al
Event: City Fest
Dogs Allowed? Yes!!!! So many dogs there.
Welcome to another review of a city event! This one is on Auburn’s City Fest, and right away I got some serious Woodstock Vibes from the people huddled under the shade of the many trees while on their picnic blankets. My other half would have loved it, had he accompanied me but having run all weekend last week, he opted to stay home.
I met up with Miss Jeans and her husband and we wandered around the many, many booths for a while. Plenty of art and unique treats to be seen. Including coffee candy that was Phenomenal and ties into my theme. I tried the french vanilla and bought a Pop. The inside of the candy has the bean in it. I’m really excited to eat it later. It was a hard choice on what flavor to try, because they had so many different ones. The same booth also had Coffee Butter Lip Balm and… GUYS. It smells so good and it feels so rich. If I pucker up, I smell coffee. It’s amazing.
Aside from the coffee stuff, they had some crinkle fries that were pretty over-priced that we wanted, but couldn’t justify spending 11 bucks on it. What I could justify was some red-velvet keylime cake. I tasted the velvet portion and it was divine. Unfortunately I did drop it, and while one of the MANY dogs didn’t get to it, it did get a little beat up. It still tastes FANTASTIC.
I really wanted to try some of the food, but unfortunately, I’m on a budget so I had to make do with cake and lip balm. I did really want some italian ice or some pork skins, which had some flavors that you don’t see in stores like sour cream and onion.
The high-light of my day at the event was the dogs. You couldn’t take two steps without running into a dog. Pit Bulls, Huskies, Labs, and Corgies were everywhere. My favorite dog was one wearing sunglasses that I was invited to take a photo of. He posed for me and just looks so relaxed that I wanted to take him home with me.
There were so many stalls of different crafts and foods, and the entire park smelled absolutely delicious that I was starving within about 45 minutes. We decided to hit the road before it got close to closing so that we wouldn’t have to fight to escape. I took one lingering look back into the park before we left to carry on with our day.
From this point on, since this event had just so many dogs, I’ll be using puppies for my rating system.
