My favorite pastime in Augusta is all the festivals.  I just like to be out and about in the middle of all the activity, the culture, the vendors.   Sometimes I’m on stage; other times just a spectator…a part of the crowd.  This season the festivals just haven’t stopped.  I noticed driving through downtown, that they just aren’t taking any tents down this year.  Or maybe as soon as one goes down, here comes another.  We enjoyed First Friday and then the Ironman Triathlon.  Wow, how cool was that? Don’t take down the festival tents yet, though.  The biggest one was yet to come.  Next it was Westobou, and Arts in the Heart.  Tents everywhere, stages everywhere.  Culture, dance, music, ethnic food for everyone!  But wait, it’s still not over.  Here comes this Hispanic Festival, the Greek Festival, and Octoberfest.
