Our little red-neck Eastern Shore town has some well hidden jewels spread about. Some things like The Acorn Market, best deli here, Specific Gravity, best pizza and beer, or The Cove Beach are all wonderful places that I treasure dearly and they actually keep me sane when I am beating my head with mild hatred towards this town.
Down town on The Plaza the road is brick and lined with beautiful trees that are always lite up with white lights. There are store front shopping and restaurants on either side of the street, some amazing little boutiques, and restaurants, some are offices of lawyers and accountants and then many are vacant. I’m not sure why this town can’t get it together because this would be an amazing place to wander on the weekends.
Every year the town does hold the Salisbury Festival. There are bands, carnival games and rides, a beer garden, food vendors and the like however I will not go because it is home to the seediest of characters the world has ever encountered.
Now another hidden secret is the Third Friday events the town has been hosting every month for years now. I just found out about it last year but only finally decided to go a few months ago at a friend’s urging. She assured me it was nothing like the Salisbury Festival and she was right!
The Third Friday is a fun gathering of all the local artists, there are bands, food, beer (really need a better beer garden- I just bring my own), bouncy houses, face painting and more. I love it. We go every month now and in fact I can’t wait for it to come around. Once the weather gets too cool they move everything inside.
Once a month I feel like I am back home in a cool little town when everyone is out to have fun! Last night was especially wonderful with the go-go guy playing music on his buckets. The kids had a blast and I could have watched them all night enjoy his music and helping him play.
Of course because it is the month of Halloween my girls were dressed up but that made it all the more fun in my eyes! These are photos from last night venture.
There is always room for more vendors, artists, bakers, causes so contact the town of Salisbury if you are interested in setting up shop!
