Art Cars, Buffalo Wings and Other Festivals of Fun

This list of festivals arrived in my inbox today as part of an email promotion for AirTran Airlines. I just wanted to share these because I think it is interesting to see the types of festivals that other cities are holding. Maybe there are some Pittsburgh connections to these festivals or some Pittsburgh regulars that attend. The art car festival caught my eye because the Post-Gazette had an article, which I was able to find!!!, about Art Cars in Pittsburgh. I am kind of fascinated by these cars – the only art like car I see on a regular basis now is the truck for the coffee/cigar shop Leaf and Bean.8 Crazy Adventures For You! Go!
