Mushroom Mardi Gras
Gilroy started the Garlic Festival 32 years ago. A year later, Morgan Hill started the Mushroom Mardi Gras.
The Garlic Festival is world famous; each year in July the festival would be in news everywhere while Mushroom Mardi Gras is usually quiet and low key. Mushroom is just not as "sexy" as Garlic.
The good thing about the Mushroom Mardi Gras is that it's free! Free admission and free parking. This year, the weather forecast shows that the temperature will be in the high 70s and sunny, a perfect day for outdoor activities. There will be lots of good food, entertainment and vendors.
Hope you will be able to join the fun.

Waiting, Waiting, Waiting... A Baby Bird Video
"The baby birds sleep most of the time, there is a harmonies rhythm to their breathing, see the video at the bottom. Mama birds is no longer sitting, most of the time she is elsewhere probably looking for food for the babies.
The babies are starting to feather and definitely starting to poop, our light fixture is a mess. The light fixture has been there since day one when we moved in over 30 years ago, it's time to change to a new one. In as much as we like to see the baby birds, it'll be really nice when we could install a new front door light and can actually turn it on in the evening."
