Akst: New festivals mean new opportunities
My naïveté was amusing.
As a reporter, I had covered several of these things. As a former party animal, I had lived large at the likes of Eeyore’s and Willie Nelson’s birthday parties in Austin, Texas. Even as a reasonably well-adjusted grown-up, I have enjoyed Corn Fest and the Sycamore Pumpkin Festival. (Note to planners: change name to “PumpkinFest.”)
But nothing prepared me for the surrealism of a “Day Out with Thomas” on Sunday at the Illinois Railway Museum in Union.
