John Mayer's Real Estate Blog: The First Friday Fest in Cape Canaveral, Florida

The First Friday Fest in Cape Canaveral, Florida

Cape Canaveral held it's very first Friday Fest from 6 to 10 pm on Mar. 5, 2010. I got there early when people were just starting to arrive but the crowd was pretty good when I left around 7 pm despite the chilly weather.

Now that's real flame broiling! I think he likes his own cooking :-)

There was lots of food and drink, crafts, music, art and more. The Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach communities are wonderful places to live and the people are friendly too. If you get tired of going to the beach, there are lots of other fun things to do and Orlando's theme parks are only 50 minutes away.

This artist used spray cans, round caps and paper for wiping to create the work on the right. It only took him 15 minutes and was amazing to watch.

The little monkey on the left climbed up and down the rock wall before the adults got even half way up.

Hi John, I didn't hear about this, thanks for passing the info along. Looks and sounds like fun.  I bet it was a bit chilly. My daughter had a track meet till 8PM and it got cold.

Hi John I have of these fun fests while visiting friends in FL. While all the artists are great (now cool is that wooden table?) the gentleman doing the spray can art catches my eye!!! Very creative he is.

I hit a button on my PC now my whole comment is in italics and I don't know how to fix it and I'm too lazy rewrite this comment!

Looks like lots of fun, John :) I really enjoy street fairs and craft shows - it's great to see everyone's creative ideas!

Hi John, I love street fairs too. But that guy looks like he could have nearly burned down his own tent. :-)

Hi Sandy - It was chilly but that didn't stop people from turning out with an extra sweater on. Next week should bring better weather.

Cynthia - Until you saw the end result, you would never think he was creating a space scene. It was cool to watch.

Debi - I am constanly amazed at the talent here on the beach.

William - The "fire man" was just cleaning the grill and the flames were normal in about 5 minutes.

John - It looks like a wonderful event!  But that barbeque looks a little out of control to me!  It makes me wanna grab a fire extinguisher:-)

Myrl - The chef had it under control (I think). The event should get better as more people get to know about it.
