Excited local event you should NOT miss! that's South End Hops Festival

This is such a well-done festival. Seamless, never oversold, and just an overall enjoyable experience every time.

Shew, it was hot this year. Luckily, there was the cider hill which was the perfect place to find some shade. On top of that, I love cider so it really was the perfect spot for me. Shout out to Red Clay who had some delicious offerings this year. That jalapeno one was amazing.

I liked that all of the non-pouring tents/sponsors had interactive experiences for guests. There's nothing worse than festivals/events that just feel like a trade show. You can tell these sponsors took the time to come up with fun stuff.

Both Papi Queso and Dumpling were among the food trucks, two of my favorites.

One thing I will say, the festival is dog-friendly (which is cool), but if it's crazy hot outside (like this year) I can say with full confidence your dog would much rather stay at home in the AC.

Congrats to Shawn and his entire team on another amazing day.
