WINTERFEST Adventure: 2/7/2015

The Gasport Lions sponsored WINTERFEST today at RoyHart Elementary School.  I asked Mary Ann if she wanted to go and she did!  She picked me up and we headed out to Gasport.

The festival offered many various things to see and do.  Mary Ann particularly enjoyed the Siberian Huskies.
 We watched the reptile show and some dancing.
 I purchased a few items from a couple of the vendors.  We had lunch (mac and cheese) in the cafeteria and later on returned for desert.  We looked at the baskets but decided against purchasing tickets.  I offered to donate blood, but since I did not have a picture ID with me, I was not allowed to.

After the event, we headed back to Lockport.  I asked Mary Ann to show me where she lives (for future reference) and she also showed me the house that used to be Joe's Market.  I showed her the house I grew up in on Evans Street.  

I suggested one last stop: there is a new vintage/collectible shop in the old STRANGES GROCERY STORE.  I found this piece of furniture, I don't know what to call it, but I knew it would fit perfectly into this spot just beyond my front door, so I bought it and they delivered it to my house immediately.   It gives me more spots to hang up coats and bags, etc.  I love i!
