This year, my view of Rendezvous was from the historical village. It was a much warmer day, and very busy as time for the parade approached.
Things were crowded, and much to my surprise we rarely heard the music from across the street at Riverside park over the hum of conversations.
While the crowd seemed busy to me, and there seemed to be plenty of vendors (stretching up to folks with tables set up along the street), the recurrent conversation I kept hearing was about how much smaller things were. It was typically a nostalgic conversation, with a wistful question at it’s heart: how long will this continue?
Rendezvous was a lot of fun and I hope it continues for many years to come. It seemed like a good turn out from where I was sitting.
