So far, this year's Folk Festival in Bannerman Park lived up to all my expectations. It was T-shirt weather at 10:30 PM last night. Not a breath of wind, an almost full moon, and a crowd of people in a good mood.
My kid went mad dancing at the front of the stage with a big group of girls ranging in age from 2 to 11 or 12. I don't know why there weren't more boys up there, but my 4 year old son had the ladies all to himself for two solid sets, before the Dardanelles' brought the grown ups to their feet too. Then the dance floor got a little more congested, but my husband stayed in the thick of it with our son who basically danced until he dropped. We all didn't get into bed until midnight, but it was worth ignoring Bed Time for the fun we had and the memories we made last night.
We have weekend passes so (pending the forecast) we'll be there this afternoon and likely back for the evening show if our kid doesn't crash first. We'll be going Sunday too.
There were a few people who I know from Twitter (@stjohnskid) who were there last night and were tweeting about the fantastic kids dance party too. If you are on twitter and you are there today and tomorrow, let me know and maybe we can meet IRL.
