summer festivals: may

We are having some really beautiful days here in Atlanta and with the hot weather comes tons of water and festivals.

We kicked off festival season with the Malcolm X Festival at West End Park. This festival has been going on for 30 years in the historic West End and I can vividly remember all 30 years participating with my family so we will carry on the tradition with my kids.

I specifically remember the all women African drum and dance group, Giwayen Mata, and they too have been performing since the very first one 30 years ago.

I did something different this time I let my three year old take pics and he’s pretty good.

I put this blog post together to share some of the pictures from this weekend but also to give you an insight on the upcoming festivals in May.

May….summer is around the corner which means picnics, pools, water parks, BBQs, brunches and bottomless Mimosas.

My summer is planned, can’t you tell.
