Fun Weekend At DIY Street Fair

This past weekend was the annual DIY Street Fair, and as usual it was a lot of fun. It's easily my favorite street fair/festival in the Detroit area. DIY went on the whole weekend with good tunes, food, beer and of course lots of great vendors. 

I look forward to DIY every year. It always has the best vendors. None of those stupid kitchen knife demonstration people. I don't go to a craft show to watch an infomercial! I usually walk away with a new ring for every finger and who knows what else. Christie and I were definitely scoping out the amazing posters at Shawn Knight's booth, too.
I swear every year the festival grows and this year was no exception. There was even a free ferris wheel! I am a little wary of carnival rides, all the creaking and weird noises kind of freak me out, so I didn't go on it, but I'm sure there would have been a nice view of the festival from the top. Maybe next time I'll brave it.

It was great seeing everyone's faces out and about during the weekend, especially at the Loving Touch for Sadie's birthday and the awesome Jamaican Queens and Child Bite shows. I have never seen the place so packed. It was hard just to get up to the bar to grab a beer!
Smudge Candy also put on a great show! You really need to keep an eye on these girls, and if you missed it, you can read an interview with them here.

Check out some pictures from the weekend and see why you won't want to miss it next year!
