Festive Weekend

Yesterday, Gadsden celebrated First Friday, a monthly event with antique cars, food vendors, the stores staying open later, live music, arts and crafts tables and thousands of people strolling down Broad Street!
This time we ate delicious barbecue, roasted corn, homemade ice cream and enjoyed watching the street dancers which are there every month! Sometimes people join them who are very entertaining to watch, and that was the case yesterday! Much to my husband's annoyance, I could watch them for hours! Friends were in town visiting their family which lives around the corner from us so it was extra fun for us!
Today, I have been getting ready for Easter dinner at our house with 18 people coming each bringing something to share. I am making family recipe home made meatballs, sauce, some pasta and some additional foods coming are greek salad, chicken gyros, ham, eggplant parmigiana, rolls, desserts, vegetables, deviled eggs, etc, etc!
Hope you all have a happy and blessed day tomorrow!!
