The edible town party

At the same time as the Glad Mat festival that I wrote about, there is another festival called the edible town party going on around 1,5 kilometer away. This is a good festival with a few food trucks and a few resturant seeing food outside. The focus here is to eat nice food and relax.

I visited the festival with a blanket to sit on and a book. There is more room here as there is a large area to sit and enjoy. This is a bit more family friendly and you can even bring your own food should you want. I didn’t join in the free yoga lessons and I was too old to get my face painted, but lying down in the grass, by the sea with a good book and good beer is quite a good way to spend an afternoon.

This festival is in an up and comming part og town where they have built a lot of new small parks in between old renovated industry buildings and luckily for me it’s not to far from where I live.

The weather has continued to impress this weekend and today I took the opportunity to go to the beach and have a swim.

  3. That sea view was really impressive and looks like a lovely place to set and watch people. My favorite thing to do with food and drink. 🙂 That weather looks absolutely perfect! Food trucks are quite the thing here too.

    Nice! There’s nothing better than a good outdoor food festival on a nice day. Great pics!

  10. Isn’t it great when communities get together, and who doesn’t enjoy eating out in the open!. I also love how the UK does the big breakfasts, as a way to fundraise for the community hall etc

  11. It is a great name. Love it!
