matthews alive

i spent the holiday yesterday with the fam at the matthews alive festival seriously 2 blocks from my new place. this is a festival that i grew up coming to as a kid & remember as "stumptown festival." it has more recently been renamed matthews alive. the town shuts down a few blocks of matthews, nc near stumpton park for friday - monday & set up for live entertainment, a parade, art vendors, festival food & much, much, more for the labor day holiday!

not only have i gone to this festival my whole life, i also used to dance in the parade as a kid with our dance studio & ride the float. i was so cool... or at least i thought i was. my sister thanked me for buying a house so close to matthews alive so they could park here. glad i could help : )

here are a few pics from our day!

& a few things you only see in the south : )
