the Carlsbad Fair
Author: westiehopper :: Posted: Thu May 04, 2006 9:50 am GMT
The huge Carlsbad street fair is this Sunday, 9-dark(6:30ish). This is the best street fair in the area, in case you've never been. There's a lot of live music in several different locations, but best of all is that in a bar(with a small dance floor) on the main street they have a band that includes that awesome blond boogie woogie keyboard player from Blue Largo. I've been 3 fairs in a row now where they've played from around 11ish AM until late afternoon. FREE. I always do streetfairs alone (don't have to keep track of anyone that way) so it's been hit or miss finding a dance partner. Come dance with me! And there's a great Farmer's Market, too. This fair offers junk, antiques, artists, craftsmen, clothes, music, food and more. You should check it out. And they have a kiddie area, too.
I always park just east of the freeway to avoid traffic, then walk in.
