Got back a while ago from the College of Central Florida campus, where they held the 23rd annual Taste of Ocala. Boy, do I feel like a stuffed pig, especially after doing Taste of St. Augustine yesterday.
Which is better? Depends. Do you like a smaller selection, payment at each food booth, but 8 hours to get your food and a neat spot to get it at? St. Augustine’s the way to go. Prefer only having to pay to get in then eat all you want, a large variety, but only 4 hours and in an open field? Then you’d like Ocala.
For me it’s a tie, ’cause the plusses and minuses kind of balance out. I do wish they weren’t the same weekend, but I don’t think either’s likely to change. When the weather’s this beautiful, you can’t go wrong with a good food festival, wherever you’re at. Get out and have fun, whatever way you like, that’s my advice.
Sorting through pictures, finally. After yesterday, I’m up to almost 2400, so I really need to stop and cull out what I want to upload before I go roadtripping again. It’s times like this I actually hope for crappy weather on the weekend.
