The Florissant Flower Festival

This is the big shindig for Florissant. We went last year and came back to witness the festival. Also there was this awesome Mexican Bakery that came up last year and I have been craving their pastries since. Speaking of food, here is Lizzy holding our Potato Tornado. It looks better then it was, but it was so fun to watch them make it! The booth was run by four elderly gentlemen who were an absolute riot!

From 2011-05-07 Florissant flower fest

 We listened to some fine music and a ventriloquist who amazed me by simultaneously clucking his tongue and humming. It was crazy. There was an awesome band/tap dancing group that was amazing. Lizzy made a sand necklace, pained a snake, colored a penguin, made a flower and got her face painted. She was tuckered out by the end of the day. I was expecting to see some friends in the parade, but they didn't come. Alas. The floats were cute. And yes the bakery was there. Hooray!
