This Summer's Festival Line-Up!!

Any good Richmonder knows that the best part of living in this city has to be the amazing variety of festivals we have, especially in the summer.  Richmond's festivals are a great chance to explore new cuisines, learn about different cultures, buy some cool handicrafts, and enjoy some great music and dance performances.  Although it's been a while since I've lived full-time in Richmond, I always get super excited about filling up my calendar with festival dates!

I've checked out a couple, but I definitely have a lot more to see.  Somehow I always end up missing the Filipino Festival, but this year, I am going to make absolutely sure that I make it there.  Who can say know to lechon and halo halo?  Not me!  Lechon is one of my favorite foods, so I just have to try it Filipino-style.
