Yesterday we went to Seattle Center for the Northwest Folklife Festival which is held on Memorial Day Weekend every year. Thousands of people attend so the crowds can get a bit out of hand. The festival has lots of live music, food and it is definitely a place to people watch. The day was a hot one, so standing in line for my Fried Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich, I had to suffer for it. But this fried treat was so worth it. The line was long and I think they got the tickets for the orders messed up because people behind me were getting their food before me. I've never had a Fried PB&J, only a Fried Babe Ruth so I didn't know what to expect. Turned out, it tasted like a doughnut with warm peanut butter and raspberry jelly, can you say yum? Besides the festival food, I enjoyed walking around and checking everything out.
The Fountain at Seattle Center with the Space Needle in the background. The day was a warm one, so people loved running in and out of the sprays of water.
While waiting in line for my fried PB&J, the person next to me in line had a very tired and warm puppy. She decided to just plop down next to us and relax.
The fried PB&J that my husband and I split. Turned it out be a good afternoon snack and who would have thought it would taste so good. Oh, wait, anything fried tastes good!
Overall, the Folklife Festival was a great way to start the summer. For more information go to http://www.nwfolklife.org
