The weather today was perfect for the first of a summer-long weekly line-up of Friday brown bag lunches at Canan Commons in Downtown Muncie. So, I packed up some picnic lunches for the boys and myself and headed down there. I had been wanting to check out this music/entertainment series last year, but the weather proved to be stifling hot pretty much every week.
The event is advertised as lasting from 11:00-1:00 each week, but other than the bounce house there wasn't much going on before noon on this first day. My kids had a blast with the whole bounce house all to themselves though! The organizers of the series plan to have a bounce house and/or other activities for kids every week this year, so hopefully more parents or caretakers will take advantage of this great free activity.
I really enjoyed the music provided by Barry Banks. He was pretty humorous with his between-song commentary too. My favorite song was one of his originals about how much he loves green beans fresh from the garden! I can't wait to attend this event again soon on another Friday, and if Andrew gets his wish we'll be dining on hot dogs from the Big Ed's Dogs cart instead of bringing our own food.
