In the Streets

This weekend we enjoyed an interesting gathering of people here in downtown Frederick during the 'In the Streets' celebration.

I never really saw what we were celebrating but their were sure a lot people.

We actually did not get there until about 5PM and missed most of the excitement. They were already breaking down the various booths and stands that had been scattered all along Market street.

As far has people watching goes, this event had a much more diverse sampling than the Frederick Fair.

Everything from families with little kids, to tattooed mid-aged folk, to square-dancing seniors and strung out street folk. There were a lot more of the riff-raff type of youth at this event (but no prize winning beasts).

We walked up Market street and back observing the die-hard performers, the weary festivites, and hundreds of party folk cramming into the local bars. It was fun to watch all the kids in kayaks and paddle boats on the canal. And that was about it. Back to the car and home again, home again...

Here are some pictures of 'In The Streets'
