This year’s ninth Thursday Market saw another welcome change in the weather. The day started out nice and toasty – some call it hot. With late afternoon came bands of clouds, just in time to take the sting out of the sun, as the Market started. For an hour or so, it was slighly humid, but not unbearably so.
As I was talking to Mean Mo of “Mean Mo and Dirty Sallie’s” outside the Folsom Mercantile Antique mall, a gentle cooling breeze came in and it was very welcome.
It was a great evening for walking around making new friends. There were several new arrivals from the Bay area, including San Jose and Petaluma. They moved to the Folsom area for a change of pace, for respite from the madding crowd. Welcome to Folsom, we’re glad to have you here.
There were lots of interesting displays around the 900 block. Just after 6pm, there was already a crowd forming at the video games display and Carmichael Honda Motorsports brought out some great gear for the big kids, down at Sutter and Decatur.
Star Eco Station brought two new scaly friends this week. A massive yellow snake, who apparently still has a lot of growing to do and his young lizard pal.
The BBC Beatle Tribute band was great. They drew a great crowd early on and built up throughout the evening. The chairs provided by the Folsom History Museum were a big hit.
