Coming this weekend, and starting on Thursday (for a long weekend), is the annual Taste of Amherst. This is not an event I have attended before, still being new to the Valley, but it certainly sounds good. Food, entertainment, people, and fun -- what more could you ask for on the Amherst Town Common in the middle of June? More than 20 restaurants will be represented with tasty vittles to tempt the palate -- and menus to take home. Entertainment in the form of music will include Unit 7, Swing Caravan, Client 9, Rusty Belle, and Wild Wood -- the full music schedule can be found on The River website. And there are fun things for the kids, too! The Kids Carnival will be in full swing with pony rides, face painting, and more. It sounds like a great time -- and four days of fun leave plenty of time for even busy folks to get out and enjoy it.
FOOD! (I love food!)
