One of the best parts of summer are all the festivals with concerts, carnival rides, booths and booths of junk food (just about anything can be friend and put on a stick these days!) craft fairs, fireworks and people watching. On Friday night we checked out Lisle's Eyes to the Skies Festival with a beautiful hot air balloon area. We heard a couple of bands, watched fireworks at the end of the evening and had a magnificent time!
There were some interesting people there -- like the guy below (those are peace signs on his glasses):
And I was a bit surprised to see people flocking to pay their $2 a person to go inside this tent and see the most unusual thing in the world:
I think they look a little puzzled. Perhaps they are thinking, "We could have saved our money and bought another funnel cake instead". :0)
Happy Independence Day, America! And enjoy this fun season!
