We spent this past weekend away in Winona, MN for the Mid West Music Festival: three days of music, beer, food, nature, and otherwise exploring a town we weren't too familiar with it.

The next day we went on a hike and then to the Winona Earth Day festival for music, snacks, and free seeds from some of the vendors.

We missed the llama obstacle course. Bummer. I think it was probably awesome. But we did see some good sidewalk chalk art, Koo Koo Kangaroo, and laid on a blanket in the grass in the sun! I also got some rad wire earrings from a vendor that I will definitely be wearing daily.
We spent a lot of time looking for good food. Our first hunt for breakfast was a brutal disaster that wound in bad food from a chain, but later we found a few good coffee shops with great vegetarian food. I wanted to hit up a local donut shop that had rave reviews from the only person I knew who lived in Winona... nearly 30 years ago, but it happened to be closed the day we tried to go.
The weekend ended with a Kimya Dawson- you know, from the Juno soundtrack and whatnot. It in a Masonic center and everyone sat on the floor.
Well, that's just the start of summer festival season... I can't wait for more!
