I live for the weekends....

I feel very fortunate to live in a city where there is always something going on.  And summertime in Columbus is the best.   I have decided that this year I am going to try to find as many fun and free activities to participate in.   I have a few of my summer favorites listed below.  

I love the FAIR.   Food.  Popcorn.  People Watching.   Bacon-wrapped-anything-you-can-dream-up.  Fair rides.  Food.  Horses.  Thin cut french fries with malt vinegar.   Food.  Deep-fried-everything.   Food.  Well, you get the point.   I think that the Ohio State Fair is one of the best around.  The Ohio State Fair is not free but one can generally get pretty good discount tickets.   If you go- look for me.  I will be the girl eating. Everything.  

I am thinking about attending this festival in a couple of weeks.   I remember going to the Powell Festival when it was just a small street affair.  Powell has grown as a city and this festival grows every year.


I signed up to do The Color Run this summer.   This is not a free event, but I am still super excited to participate.   I want to make it clear that the word "Run" is a little misleading as I do not plan on running anywhere.   In fact, I do not run unless I am being chased.   But, I am excited to walk this race with a fun group of friends.   We will certainly have a blast and I cannot wait to see pictures!!

 And lastly, but certainly my most favored is ComFest.   ComFest is a major holiday in my life.   I always look forward to spending as much time as possible at this Community Festival.   I think that ComFest is truly a festival that has a strong message of promoting community, environment, and social consciousness.  Live Every Day the ComFest Way.   You will find me there.  Hanging out.  In my element.

What are some of the local festivals or summer events that you attend?   Let me know so I can check them out.   Maybe I will even join you and we can find some deep friend goodness to share.

  1. Columbus festivals are the BEST; I totally agree. Our favorites ComFest, Greek Festival, Italian Festival, and Pride. The Greek and Italian Festivals are later in the summer, but Pride is this weekend. Happy Pride, everyone!
