Diary of an Intern: Roycroft Festival Weekend

diary of an intern

A few weeks ago, East Aurora celebrated.

I come from a small town that knows how to have weekend festivals (hey, Milford. Miss ya.), but we’ve got nothing on East Aurora when it comes to community and getting involved.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMy first stop was the Baker United Methodist Church strawberry festival/jumble sale. I LOVE Methodism and “jumble sales” (we don’t have that concept in PA…but I like it!), so this was great.

Then we headed on down to Parkdale Elementary for the Roycroft artisan exhibit, which also had food stands and live music. My intern salary means I’m not really in the market for any Roycroft art, but it was fun to wander around.

Then it was time for a picnic, followed by biking to the middle school for more art.

How talented are these people? I wish I could paint.

Across the street was another festival/sale at the Roycroft campus.

It was another happening weekend in East Aurora. I’m headed to the reunion on Friday and, of course, the Sidewalk Sale this weekend–any other recommendations, EAers?
