Hello Lovelies,
I hope everyone had a fabulous Memorial Weekend.
Saturday here in Charlotte was a gorgeous day.  The sons were busy with their own thing, so husband and I decided to head Uptown to the SpeedStreet Festival.  It is held in conjunction with The CocaCola 600 race.  Now, husband and I ARE NOT NASCAR fans, but the day was beautiful so we decided to go check it out.  If it was really bad, no problem, we would just leave.

Turns out the Festival was pretty fun.  Kinda like a giant Trick or Treat gig for grown ups.  We each had our free drawstring bag and went around to booths collecting all kinds of samples.  From computer cleaner, Lucky Charms, Barbecue sauce and everything in between!  By the time we got home both of our bags were full to the brim.

Husband was my photographer on Saturday and we had fun picking places and people to take pictures with.  Here is a little taste of our SpeedStreet Experience.

Of course we had to get a picture with the Wiener Mobile! 
 I even entered the Wiener Mobile Car Race.
My car was #1.  #4 won, but we all got a wiener whistle!

I have no idea who's car this is.  I just know I like Oreos!

The Dole Banana and I just hanging out.
  Unfortunately the samples that Dole were giving out were not Bananas. 
 It was cole slaw, kinda weird huh?

Hey, Is that Danica Patrick???
Tony the Tiger and I go way back!
You can't see it in this picture, but the sidecar on the motorcycle is a giant coke bottle. 
 I am not sure I could ever be brave enough to try and commander one of these things.

So that was our lovely Saturday afternoon. 
 We listened to some bands, had a Bloody Mary or two, checked out a ton of booths and the most fun...
 all of the people watching!

Very cute pictures.  I love your ruffly top and think you look fab on a motorcycle!

Peggy said...

This all looks so fun! My kids would have loved it!

Ashley said...

Fun!  I really like the pictures of you with the costumed up people.  I never have the guts to go stand by them...they kind of creep me out, to be honest, but I'm sure I've missed a lot of great photo ops because I'm a little baby.  This looks like some great summer fun.  Now if summer would only show up here!

Oh fun! That kind of festival isn't something I'd usually gravitate towards but I'll try anything once! You really did look like you had a lot of fun-- especially in the last pic.  The Dole mascot is cute haha
