Spectacular weather. Toe-tapping music. Plenty of room to roam.
And tons of food from more restaurants than anyone realized could be packed into one small area. Cuisine ranged from American, Mexican, seafood and health food to Chinese, Indian and — of course; this is Saugatuck — Italian.
This afternoon’s Slice of Saugatuck was a perfect late-summer Saturday event. That resurgent community shone, from the river to the railroad, along the bustling streets and Bridge Square.
Proceeds from the $5 entry fee went to the Gillespie food pantry.
How’s that for a great slice of Westport life?
Music — not train horns or garbled announcements — filled the station air today.
Two youngsters demonstrated tae kwan do in Luciano Park.
Dunville’s was one of 24 restaurants offering free food. The sliders were a big hit.
Attending a street fair can be stressful. Saugatuck Studios offered free massages, near their Bridge Square location.
Free kayaks brought plenty of people to Down Under’s riverside dock.
