Over the Independence Day weekend Reno holds the All-American Barbecue Festival in conjunction with the Firecracker 500 off road race.  A booth serving up very tasty BBQ was run by the Silver Legacy Hotel.  I highly recommend it if you are planning a stay in Reno.  The high plains of Northern Nevada are special, with lots of sunshine, moderate afternoon high temperatures, cool evenings and low humidity.  It was very nice in the afternoons when the sun slipped behind the Silver Legacy and Eldorado buildings.

Some of these were captured at  festival sponsored by the Japan-America Society of Houston and held in Hermann Park.  Much of the entertainment was paid for by the Japanese Consulate here in Houston. The remaining photos are from a small art festival held at Houston’s beautiful Elizabeth Baldwin Park.

Hermann Park Kite Festival

This inaugural kite festival was held in conjunction with Hermann Park’s centennial.  The giant fish kite does not fly well on its own, so it was assisted by the more efficient rainbow colored kite behind it.

Start with a big parking lot, add a bunch of award winning food trucks, craft beer, Texas skies and you have Haute Wheels. This year’s festival added a small Via Colori to the mix. It was 86F and humid on this first weekend of Spring.
