Tradition
We’re keen to confess that we might all the time stand a little bit extra tradition. We love festivals that commemorate the traditions, arts and crafts, and meals that individuals have introduced with them from their homelands. America IS a melting pot, and there’s no higher place than native cultural festivals to expertise the very best of it.
Meals
Sure, we do take pleasure in experiencing and studying about culinary traditions, however we additionally take pleasure in corndogs, funnel cake, and just about any meat on a stick. It’s simply who we’re. As soon as once more, no higher place to search out that than a pageant – whether or not it’s a small city celebrating Mom’s Day, or the granddaddy of all of them, the Texas State Honest. (Go forward, tell us how nice YOUR state truthful is!)
