25 Reasons You Should Drop Everything and Head Over to the Mushroom Festival. RIGHT NOW.

As many of you know, I live in Kennett Square, PA.  A quaint town with a lot of charm.  A quaint town that hosts KICKIN' events, such as the Kennett Brewfest (heck yes, we attend).  But this weekend, by far, is Kennett's finest event hour.  If you are local (as in, within a 2 hour drive), you should DROP EVERYTHING and head down (up? over?) to the Kennett Square Mushroom Festival. Today. Tonight. Tomorrow.  NOW.

I could entice you with paragraphs of history, event schedules and the like. Instead, I will give you the short list of why you need to be here.

25 Undeniable Awesome Reasons You Should Come to the 

Kennett Square Mushroom Festival

1) Fried Food.  Tons of it.

2) The Town Dish Red Carpet.  It makes you feel like a celebrity.

3) You could win $10,000. Yup. The Matt Fetick Real Estate Team will be hosting a SCVNGR hunt in October. Winner gets $10,000 CASH toward new home.  Get the scoop at their booth.

4) Dansko shoes.  You can enter to win a free pair.

5) 6 ABC Action News is a sponsor and has coverage on all the action.  They put the "Action" in "Action News."

6) Deep fried Mushrooms.

7) Actually, a lot of mushroom fare.  And tastings.

8) Awesome ice cream: La Michoacana and Woodside Farm Creamery are there loaded with the cold stuff.

9) Iron Chef Jose Garces is IN THE HOUSE.

10) Lunch at El Ranchero.

12) Cool cut outs you stick your head through for pictures.  Do it for the kids.

15) Cool things to purchase from cool vendors.

16) Caricature drawings.  All the cool kids are doing it.

17) Awesome music, thanks to 93.7 WSTW.

18) Wild Bill's Old Fashion Soda.  All kinds of soda flavors, in an awesome metal mug. Major benefit? Free refills during the duration of the Festival.

19) Balloons.

20) 5k Run tomorrow. I'm doing it. So you should too.

21) Garlic Shots.  Don't believe me? Well. You should.  I couldn't make that crap up.

22) Cute kids (Yes, that l'il one is mine).  And cute friends (Yes, the blonde one is mine).

23) Lots of people, food and festivities

  5. After I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked
    the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on every
    time a comment is added I receive four emails with the
    exact same comment. Perhaps there is an easy
    method you are able to remove me from that service?

    She has also adopted an American name, June,
    which illustrates her assimilation to American culture.

    If I ever found a product that was sticky or smelly I
    would never use it again, but then I started
    hearing more and more about another issue - dangerous personal care products so I started researching.
