Va-Hi Simmerfest

Posted By on Mon, Jun 9, 2008 at 4:22 PM


VA-HI SUMMERFEST: Artist Bill Winn sells puppets of famous people like Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimmy Buffett, Frank Zappa and, um, Bill Winn.

The Virginia-Highland annual neighborhood festival, Summerfest, is supposed to be a misnomer. Seasonally speaking, summer doesn’t actually start until June 20. But this year’s Summerfest took place in the middle of a Spring heat wave that saw daytime high temperatures in the 90s all week. Damn you, Al Gore.

Despite the wrath of Helios, fun was still had at the festival. Highlights included performances by Shawn Mullins, Sister Hazel and Michelle Malone, a come-as-you-were in 1984 costume party (which I did not participate in because it was way too hot for a Members Only jacket and parachute pants), and a 5K (which I did not participate in because I’m exceptionally lazy).
