maxwell street

This past weekend was Maxwell Street Days; all the stores on State Street pile all of their sales onto the sidewalk for the whole 6 block stretch of State Street for 3 days. This is a pretty sedate view from the capitol - further down towards the University end of State Street it gets quite boisterous, with vendors yelling through bullhorns and a lot of the ethnic restaurants bring their grills outside. It's an event - you shouldn't go here if you have an aversion to crowds and/or shopping!

Sounds like fun, I think I would be tempted to get my wallet out!
