A Visit to Hudson Quebec

Last Saturday, I went with my friends Holly and David to Hudson Quebec. There was a music festival and we decided to check it out. The main stage was near Cunningham's Pub, where we had a bite to eat and some cold beer, perfect for a hot day. Many bands played - some rock, some jazz. People were having fun, listening to the music and even getting up to dance.  

We decided to take a walk and look around the town since it had been a long time any of us had been there. I found this sign above a defunct antique store quite fascinating. It was a work of art in itself. If you look closely, you will see that the hour hand is a violin. 

There is nothing like an old-fashioned ice-cream cone on a hot summer evening! . 

We checked out some of the other music venues. This sculpture is in front of an old train station where one of the main musical acts was playing. I thought the sculpture was a bit harsh and militaristic-looking, but David had fun with it.

Looks like you guys had a lot of fun. Aren't summer festivals the best?

We did have fun. Summer festivals always feel so relaxed and people have such a good time - all together, with a real community feeling. So yeah! they are the best.

Did you find your aunt's house?

Evlyn said...

Fran: No, I didn't. I will need to go to Hudson with you to do that.
