Duct Tape Festival

Filed under: Entertainment — JeniQ @ 8:17 am

This June, we were able to attend the Duct Tape Festival in Avon, OH. It was fabulous! Carnival food, carnival rides staffed by authentic carnies, and Duct Tape Crafts!! I made a fabulous green and black purse. It’s a high-fashion design that can only fit my camera and phone – no wallet. 😉
I got a bag of cotton candy and we drank beer and ate cotton candy while watching Johnny Cash live on stage. It made for a fabulous date night. There was also a “Living Statue” who moved through the grounds; he was a lot of fun to watch.

Every year Henkel sponsors the Stuck at Prom contest where couples create and wear prom attire made entirely of duct tape. Each lucky winner receives $3000 in scholarship money, plus the fame of having the coolest duct tape outfit in the country! We saw one couple walking around the festival. They apparently spent a lot of time explaining to people how they made their outfits. My favorites included Spreading our Wings, Copperleaf & Bailing Wire, Public Enemies, and Rose and Butterfly.

At Long Last

Filed under: Entertainment,Movies — JeniQ @ 3:03 pm

My mom hasn’t been to see a movie in at least 20 years. I think she was trying to keep up her record, but when she found out that there was going to be a sequel to her favorite movie, Night at the Museum, she was so excited.

Ready to Go

So as soon as Battle of the Smithsonian was released, we made plans to go see it. We went on a Wednesday, late in the evening, and there was no one else in the theatre. It was perfect! We went to the Raleigh Grande so that we could have beer with our popcorn. And of course we checked Pee Times at RunPee before we went.

We're Off!

Alone in the Theatre

It was a fun movie, and I captured a few fun shots.
