The first Saturday in autumn, August 25th, Bob and I visited the 34th Annual Bellmore Family Street Festival. The food, the smells, the crafts… were tantalizing, and the people were the highlight of the afternoon.

As we walked to the carnival rides at the opposite end of the festival, I ate grilled corn on the cob, chatted at various political booths, and browsed at countless crafts booths, including one where I bought a glass and metal blue bird for my front yard.

We were about to leave when we ran into my daughter Sue’s family, so the five of us headed off together towards the carnival rides and ices.

After the bonus hour or so of family fun at the festival, Bob and I decided, once again, to leave.

Just before we turned off Bedford Ave to head to the car, DAN YNGSTROM — wearing his bright pink Chamber of Commerce of the Bellmores VOLUNTEER shirt (as seen early in above video) — said a cheery hi.
