Street Food Festival

On Saturday we were blessed with amazing, sunny and warm weather.
And there was no way I was staying inside.
My new internship means I’m up to date with all the events happening in the city, including the Street Food Festival that happened this past weekend.

Yes, it’s a lot better than it sounds.
