Peach Festival - Folsom, 2017


For the past 3 years, the Peach Festival has been held in Historic Folsom. This year, it was held on July 15. It occurred at the same time as their Saturday Market, so I didn't know where one ended and the other began.

So many peaches at the Peach Festival at Old Folsom!

There was a good crowd there with 3 sets of musicians to entertain everyone.

It was also nice to see a couple of my friends' businesses in the mix - Common Kettle and Basket Bungalow.

I loved that there were plenty of local businesses there and a few new ones that I never noticed before. One of the businesses I spoke with, Hensleigh Healthy Beef, raises cattle and were selling cuts of beef. I know this may seem strange, but I enjoyed talking with them with how well their cattle are treated before they are....well, you know. I appreciate hearing a different side of this industry than what I am used to hearing - humane ways of raising animals for food.

It was fun to see so the food trucks, and the many craft and non-food vendors there. One had a bubble machine - if you've been following my posts, you probably know that I love bubbles and watching children play with them.

A balloon artist was there as well. Watching her with her customers reminded me of my own children when they were much younger. I was tempted to buy one for my son, but now that he is 10, I realized that would have laughed at the childishness of my gift. I guess I just have to wait until he has kids of his own (in the far future!).
