Civil War Encampment – Framingham
This gig came about because one of our Framingham farmers market customers had their own event, and wanted us to pop there. After you’ve watched humanity walk past your tent, you find certain people that have a fun, sort of spark in their presence. You look forward to talking to there people and hope they come by. Jennifer Toth is one of those people. The first time I saw her, she was wearing a medieval wench costume for some event. I would tease her when she would come by wearing regular street clothes and I would go “that’s a lousy costume”. She’s the person in the video who was running this event.
We’ve had a pretty good start of the year with these past two events at the Framingham common. We’ve been popping flat out the entire time. Typically these early events are kind of sketchy, since we’re not really into the prime popping season, which is the first week of August. We also had an offer to pop at a Brazilian festival in Brockton later this year. We’ve learned that food festivals aren’t really that perfect of a match, since kettle corn isn’t lunch. Typically the hot dog truck kicks our ass during lunch time.
