Its a sunny, breezy Sunday afternoon...just perfect for a bike Somerville and the "Spring Spectacular" on Main Street!

I only live a few miles from downtown Somerville, and while reading the promotional liner for the "Somerville Spring Spactacular" yesterday afternoon on my New Jersey 101.5 music show, I decided that I should peddle to the fun!

As I'm approaching the downtown area via Bridge Street, I could see the NJ101.5 Big Yellow Van on the corner...and I could hear Ray The Prize Guy "working the crowd." His voice is echoing off all the buildings!

 As I arrive on the scene, the Hoola Hoop Competition is about to begin!

"Hooping it up" for "Six Flags" tickets!

The crowd goes wild for all the competitors...

...but in the end, the "Six Flags" tickets go to contestant #1...and as you can see, she's still hoola-hoopping while holding her prize tickets!

Its a great day for "people watching," and the people selling water and other cold drinks (and smoothies, etc) are doing a brisk business!  There's lots of food...and local artists and crafters, and businesses to check out!

Meanwhile, back at the New Jersey 101.5 tent...

And, Ray The Prize Guy plays cards out in the street...

What a fun afternoon...with New Jersey 101.5!

And, in case you doubt me... gasoline was used by your author in pursuit of fun in downtown Somerville this afternoon!
