At Overington Park from Noon to 3 PM.
It was a beautiful Fall day today and a perfect day to sit on a park bench and watch the passing scene. So I went over to Leiper and Orthodox to see what was happening at the festival. I finally got the opportunity to get Diane and John on camera to find out once and for all what they are up to. You can see the results below.>
