The weather was perfect this past Sunday for the Springtime Tallahassee Fall Festival. I know that sounds a little contradictory, but Springtime Tallahassee, Inc. is a local civic organization dedicated to the promotion and preservation of Tallahassee’s history. Since 1967, they have sponsored the Annual Springtime Tallahassee Festival (in the spring) which includes a parade, music, food, and arts and crafts booths. Recently they have started sponsoring a smaller one day festival in the fall at Cascades Park with children's activities, arts and crafts booths, music, and food featuring the famous Southern chicken and rice recipe called chicken pilau (pronounced "per-low"). My grandmother used to make a variation of this recipe using shrimp, which I like much better, but the chicken version is pretty good too! The musical group shown in the third picture is called The New 76ers, a local acoustic folk band and they were wonderful. You can listen to some of their music here.
Linking to signs, signs.
