It's weird but it's Fishtown

       Our biggest neighborhood event of the year is the Trenton Avenue Arts Festival.  And its headliner is the Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby.  This is a "design competition and parade of human powered vehicle floats" per their website and I couldn't think of any better way to describe it!

 I walked a couple of blocks and met this man and his mama on the street corner.

We stood and watched, and laughed and admired

                                                                     the bizzare

the classic

the silly
the beautifully strange
the musical
and the buggy.

It just made me smile inside, every single one of them.  And they were smiling too, proud of their strange little creations biking through this little neighborhood that we all love.  And then it was over and I walked home happy.
