Saturday, August 19, 2017 – The Milford Oysterfest
On Saturday, August 19th, 2017 we finally went to The Milford Oysterfest! I have to be honest, I have never missed a Norwalk Oysterfest. I have been there all 40 years! However, I have never taken the 30 minute ride to Milford for their festival. This year I was determined to make it there. I had always heard it was free and a “great day with so much to see”.
So, yes, we went. However, we didn’t see much!!
We basically stood on the hot asphalt in a corralled area and drank beer! But…..once again, it is being with the people you love that really counts!! Leslie, Scott, Pete, Karen, Jimmy, Jerry, Lisa, Rich, Vinnie and I enjoyed each other’s company and had some good laughs! It was the first time I was really out and about with this group since my surgery and I enjoyed the day with them! My day was filled with good people and cold beer! I guess I am a simple kind of girl after all!!
The day went by, and the afternoon passed and I never really saw the Green or other parts of the Festival in Milford. The next day was kind of fun to look at the Facebook pages of all the people I knew, but never saw at the Festival! When I look at their photos of the Festival it didn’t even resemble the parking lot I saw!
I think we are going to have to try it again next year so I can really experience the real aspects of the Milford Oysterfest!
