Still full on a banana split, I headed south on Park Street…

…to attend my last festival of the day.

And although it appeared kid-friendly at first…

…the Park Street Festival gave me a party vibe.

Sure, there were your family friendly festival booths…

…offering check-ins and phone charges (Yelp)…

…free vegetable snack chips (Green Giant)…

…and various gifts in a side section…

…where you could find jewelry (Valerie Long)…

…locally made comic books (2 Headed Monster Comics)…

…and some awesome T-Shirts (8 Bit Apparel).

But as I got deeper in…

…I noticed quite a few beer booths…

…a liquor booth…

…a Svedka (vodka) booth…

…which offered free T-shirts…

…plenty of open neighborhood bars…

…and even two pretty young girls who asked men for a snus (pronounced “snooze”)…

…and then lured them to this black van with a curtain door…

…for what turned out to be smokeless tobacco.

But the party feel was most strongly felt…

…when I stopped at one of the three stages…

…and started getting into the music (The Divide)…

…only to notice other people were who getting into it a little more

quite a bit more…

…and even too much.

Fortunately, all these people had the option of soaking up that booze…

…with a slice at Mikey’s

…a burrito at Junior’s Tacos

…or various grub from a ton of food trucks…

…with even more on the way.
