Spring Festival

Picture 025blog1
Lately the blogosphere has been a buzz with Autumn decorations, Halloween costumes, Fall wreaths and Pumpkin Carving. Today… here at Kirsty Girl… I offer you… none of that!

Last weekend, Andi and I attended the annual Spring Festival at the Botanical Gardens. It was the perfect time as it had only just turned warm and bright that weekend.

Usually this festival is called the Tulip Festival, however on our arrival we were informed that it could no longer be called the Tulip Festival because the gardens could not guarantee tulips due to our ever changing climate. There were many beautiful flowers out but I must say the tulips were definitely not at their best this year.

There was a lot to see and do at the gardens. Obviously aside from the usual prettiness the gardens have to offer, there were bands, rides and activities for the kids and lots and lots of food. Of course I just got a Co-Cola. Mmmm….

Anyway, the above band was definitely my favourite, afterwards we sat and watched a keyboardist/harmonist and tap dancer perform some Michael Jackson. They were… different. Haha
