Assonet Strawberry Festival
Since Dan lives in Assonet, Massachusetts, he originally wanted to do the Assonet Strawberry Festival, but all the spaces were filled. Fortunately something opened up at the last minute and we squeeked in. (At least he can’t bitch about the commute, he lives only a few minutes from the location.) This gig ended up being the perfect kettle corn event. The cost to join was only like 30 bucks. The event has been around for a very long time, so the locals are very familiar with it. The actual location is next to the busiest street in Assonet, so you get plenty of people discovering it on their own. Space was not unlimited, so everyone was pretty close together and we were situated right in the middle of everyone. You couldn’t escape the smell coming from our tent – this is either something very appealing or could be considered asshole behavior, depending on who you speak to. J We sold almost a hundred pounds of kernels that day. My next objective is to make Dan stop doing the sales guy approach to the camera and make him speak normally. Not sure if it can be done, let’s see what happens.
