Springtime Tallahassee Event

March 31, 2008

So I experienced my first Springtime Tallahassee event. I am still not sure what in the world I saw! I could not figure out what the parade was about and the different themes were very confusing. But I spent the entire day with my family and some of the leaders from ECC. The best part of the day? CARNIVAL FOOD!!!! I eat pretty healthy most of the time, but when it comes to carnival or fair food, forget it. I eat sausage and peppers, fried fish, funnel cakes, and anything else fried in an open cast iron skillet. It was amazing, but boy did I pay for it later. When you put healthy food in your stomach most of the time, and then overload it with fried stuff, your stomach does not respond well.

 

I am an observer of people, and this event was tailor made for someone like me in that regard. I noticed again that Tallahassee has a pretty diverse group of people. I know that the majority of people seem to have a country influence, but there is also a wide range of other groups of people as well. God is creative in His design, and it was apparent to me again.

 

Will I return to Springtime Tallahassee next year? As long as the food is there, and I get to be with my family and friends I will…regardless of the weird floats and reckless design.

    The theme is just sort of, you know, springtime. In Tallahassee. Just showing off the different aspects of the local community, then and now.
