On Saturday after lunch, we drove the two hours to Hartford, Connecticut where the Envisionfest festival was taking place. We arrived as the event was winding down but we were in time to have some unhealthy -but tasty and freshly-cooked - food-truck food and watch some strange passers-by while we ate it:
Then we walked through Bushnell Park where we saw a large bird and a friendly stone mermaid - and even witnessed an interaction between them (there's also a big arch there):
And we saw this excellent drum troupe:
It looks like the festival was a great event - even the small part we saw was thoroughly enjoyable.
Having walked the length of the park, we sat down between the high-rise of Hartford's downtown and the state capital:
and waited for the real reason we had made the trip...the last event of the festival (and I'll tell you about that tomorrow!)
