Calusa Studio at Summer in the City, August 14-15th
This past weekend I was at Summer in the City 2010, downtown Salem, Oregon. My first official festival. In spite of the incredibly hot weather, nearly 100 degrees in my tent on Saturday, festival goers were fun and supportive - I had a blast. Other local artists were there from Artists in Action, along with great musical talents like Cherry Poppin Daddies and Country Joe McDonald! People were keeping cool with refreshing Sangria plied by Hip Chics Do Wine and margharitas from La Margharita. A few Oregon wineries like Hip Chics, Pheasant Valley, Noble among other were there pouring. Thanks to everyone for the wonderful weekend, it was a great experience and a perfect way to spend my 40th birthday! Also, congratulations to Wendy! She was the winner of the $50 gift certificate from Calusa Studio. If you didn't make it out this year, be sure to put Summer in the City on your calendars for next year - it's a great Salem experience.
