Our family never went to the Memphis Italian Festival. The several reasons for that included the fact that it was a food festival where you couldn't eat the food -something about local health department regulations. Last year The Husband and I went, and the available food wasn't as limited as we had been led to expect. We had a great time! There were food trucks, of course, but they also had a couple of Italian options. Last year we did the food trucks. We were going to go this year, but we decided to stay home and have pizza here instead.
Here are some photos from last year:
We heard Idle&Wild and the Mason Jar Fireflies at the acoustic stage and Memphis Mystery Machine on the main stage. There was a sign at the entrance asking that no photos or videos be taken of the musical acts, and so I didn't, but...
Idle & Wild has a Youtube channel. Here's a sample:
They also performed some of their own work, which I really enjoyed.
The Mason Jar Fireflies also has a Youtube channel, and this is a song they wrote and which they played at last year's festival:
While the crowds were massing at the festival, we settled into a fun evening at home. Here's a picture of the pizza The Husband made from scratch while we played homebody instead of going out:
What a treat! And we had coffee afterwards:
We can have just as good a time at home as we can going out.
