Springfest 2012

   My computer is up and running again so all is well in the world. I was scared for a few hours because I hadn't backed up my photographs in about a month. I was concerned about losing all of the shots I had taken since then. Luckily, the computer only need a minor fix and then it was working again, so I immediately backed everything up. Phew!

   Moving forward, a couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending Springfest in downtown Northampton. Springfest is a festival of music put on by the Northampton Community Music Center. It first started in 1995 and takes place on Main Street in downtown Northampton. It features live music performed by the students of the music center every half hour. The festival is also a fundraiser for the center. Neighborhood businesses sponsor the students' performances and the students individually raise money to go towards scholarships for families that can't afford lessons. It's a great opportunity to support the music center and the children of the community.

    In addition to it being Springfest, the Saturday Northampton Farmers Market was also taking place that day. The outdoor market is another great way to support the community as well as eat fresh and healthy! The market takes place on Gothic Street every Saturday from 7am-1pm from April 28-November 10.
