I seem to have several common themes lately. First of all, I tend to end up in Massillon. Second, I tend to be doing Lincoln Highway related things when I should really be doing homework. :)
Well, at any rate, this past Friday evening I once again spent the evening in Massillon and I’m so glad I did! First off, I volunteered to pull pork at the Massillon Museum‘s Island Party which, incidentally, looking around at all of the other volunteers and how frantically they were working, I feel like I had a really easy job. There were over 100 volunteers working that night and working very hard to make the event a huge success.
Here’s some pictures of the pre-event volunteer meeting.
This first picture shows Libby, the Volunteer Coordinator in the bright yellowish shirt.
Next up are three fine gentlemen who were my fellow pork pullers.
Then I just took a bunch of random pictures of the huge crowd on the lawn. I didn’t stay too late but there were many, many people enjoying the night and the music.
I did stop in to see the Odditorium exhibit again. It was much quieter than the night of the grand opening because everybody was outside on the lawn. I had to stop by and chat with Oscar for a minute or two..
After I left MassMu I made my way over to the Eerie Street Sideshow at Thirteenth Floor.
And while I know I definitely missed out because I didn’t see the firebreathers later in the evening, I’m still glad that I went. When I got there a band was playing. I’m sorry to say that I don’t know who they were. But maybe someone will come along and let me know.
I also spotted the Dolly Rocker Ragdoll who I previously heard perform at DevilStrip Dolly’s in Akron.
Then I cruised around inside Thirteen Floor for awhile where I found some really cool things. If you’d like to check them out, their address is 46 Erie Street N, Massillon, Ohio 44646 and their phone number is 330-280-1977. This is not on the Lincoln Highway but it is only about half a block down the road so I think it qualifies as something cool to see along the Lincoln. Or perhaps I’m biased because I noticed they had a Lincoln Highway t-shirt for sale.
And yes, I’ll admit I took this next picture for, well, two reasons, actually. First of all these are very cool! Second, though, they happen to be the work of Bili Kribbs who I know just happens to read my blog.
So, all in all, I’d say it was a great evening. I’m looking forward to both events again next year and I hope to see you there.
Until then, here’s to you, here’s to Oscar, and here’s to the road…
