Get Down Downtown 2017 – Street Festival

While other families are getting ready to Trick or Treat on the Square, I’m looking back at pictures from Get Down Downtown 2017.. It’s an annual street festival hosted by Searcy, Arkansas filled with fun, food, and vendors. The food is my favorite part.

I blogged about my experience last year and couldn’t get away with not blogging about it this year.

Let’s see what we got up to that day..

It’s turned into a family affair involving myself and children, my mom, and the kids’ grandpa. First stop was a stroll through all the vendors and picking out which food trucks we wanted to eat from.

So many vendors at Get Down Downtown Street Festival

Getting treats from some of the Farmer’s Market vendors like Wildflour bakery is a must. This street festival actually lasts through the weekend, but Saturday is the day to go (because the Farmers’ Market vendors are set up!)

Abby picked out an oatmeal cream pie and somehow managed to eat it with her panda hoodie/scarf on. It was so hot this day. Everybody was amazed that she was able to wear this hat in the heat.

Losh and his grandpa took a train ride on the Boogie Train.. The man asked if Losh would be able to hold on and boy, did he have to hold on. This little train boogied its way in circles… very fast “OH MY GOSH MY KID IS GOING TO FALL OFF” circles.

They loved it.

Free Stuff and Food

Losh takes after his grandma. He loves all those goodies that people give away at their booths. He ended up with a bag full of stuff. He got everything from cups to pencils to pads of paper and bracelets. All kinds of stuff he doesn’t need, but can’t turn down.

Then it was time to get some food. We shared funnel cake, nachos, lemonade, corndogs, and even BBQ.

And picked up a few vegetables before heading home. Can’t forget those delicious – and fresh – vegetables from local farmers.
