Soupstock 2015 (a fundraiser for the Mary A Schmecker Turtle Shell Fund) is this weekend! So of course I, like everyone else in the loooooong line to get in, looked at the weather and decided to go today because it wasn't supposed to really start raining until around 5pm. Well, in true Woodstock spirit it poured today, but only after we all waited in line to get in. But, you know what, it was totally worth it!! We stuck it out with tons of other people for almost 4 hours, and it was great for the whole family. Even our 4 year olds had a blast today! Great music! Great food (especially the soups of course)! And great art (especially my and my daughter's entries of course)! Start scrolling to see the day in pictures! And make sure you go tomorrow, because rain or shine, you're guaranteed to have an incredible time!
I saw this cool green fan just sitting there in a hole in a wall in one of the cool old factory buildings on the walk down from where we parked. We had to park a long way out, but the scenery is cool so you won't mind a bit!
There were some totally psychedelic buses in the parking lot!
There was a little bit of a line to get in, but what do you expect for an event this cool!
The kids kept themselves busy while they waited in line.
There was so much for the kids to do, including lots of ways to express themselves!
The grand promenade!
West End Blend! They were great!
There are tons of cute shops with quirky stuff you can't get anywhere else!
The soup tasting competition was amazing!! Liquid Lunch brought it with a Tom Yum soup that was to die for!
Goooo Tortilla Boys! And I'm not just saying that because I shot one of their weddings! Their tortilla soup was killer!! Check out G&J Caterers if you want to try their other food!
The Alpaca Gnomes rocked that stage! They also had the best merch! I mean who doesn't want garden gnome hats! You know those are going in the props box for my Photo Booth!
My little man eating chips and digging the music.
Good music and good beer!
The Funky Dawgz kicked major brass!! *see what I did there ;-)
I just had to add this because it was such a sweet little moment I happened to see just as we were leaving, and capturing moments is what I do.
