Mayfest: Moms, Maypoles, and Lamb Trimmings

May 19, 2010

Mayfest, Downtown Lexington’s celebration of the rights of spring. Held in historic Gratz Park, the festival has blossomed into a Mothers Day weekend craft extravaganza, which is great, but what got TLH moving that direction were promises of gyros, Kentucky Ale, and kettle corn. It’s not everyday that those three are neighbors.

Dig on those shin bells.

Were there regrets for not eating from the Triple J Farm truck which boasted local proteins, no antibiotics, steroids, or hormones? Yes, but it’s just too tempting to eat meat cut from a cone shaped mass made of beef parts and lamb trimmings. Here’s some good info on Chicago’s own KronosFood factory, maker of the infamous cone. The beer was Kentucky Ale Light, our favorite of the three offerings from Alltech’s Lexington Brewing Co.

Kettle corn: sugar, salt, and fat. What else do we have to say. Here’s some franchise information for all you entrepreneurial festival-goers.
