One thing that Seattle definitely has over Chicago is that their festivals are FREE! In Chicago, we would usually fork over $10 bucks or so just to get into the darn thing. And then add-on drinks and food and whatever else there may be and you’re looking at a heft price tag for an afternoon out. But alas, Seattle doesn’t very much believe in charging for entrance at festivals which we are taking full advantage of.
Today, we headed over to Italian Fest where we indulged in some great food and of a course an Italian soda (blood orange and peach are amazing together!). We looked at fancy Italian cars that we will probably never be able to afford and strolled around enjoying the music and weather.
Until the weather gets bad or when all the fests dissolve for the season, I know we will continue to take advantage of the free admission. Thank you Seattle!
