The Bend WinterFest is coming up in a little over a week, from February 5th through the 8th. Just thought I’d give it a mention for anyone looking for something to do in Bend next weekend.
Me? No, I probably won’t attend. Not exactly a ringing endorsement, I know. I think Bend now has festivals for every season plus a few extra thrown in for good measure; the SummerFest used to be pretty decent, when they had a good beer garden and didn’t limit where you could take your beer (or wine), but when they beer garden selection got much more limited and they wouldn’t let you out of the fenced area (which caused much problems for those of us who had young kids who weren’t allowed inside the fence but had already purchased a beer before finding out you couldn’t leave), the SummerFest itself became a lot less attractive.
