This past weekend we headed up to Redmond for the Ananda Mela Festival . We had never been so we didn’t know what to expect…it was great!
There were SOOO many vendors with textiles! I just love looking at them all.
Then the hands on educational areas that were really informational as well as fun…all based on Vedic living.
We both tried our hands at mixed spices…after this I have to say it will be hard to buy a box of pre-made masala. The fresh spices were just amazing, not to mention customizable.
There were also a beautiful mama cow and her baby, that you could feed. They were the stars of the day.
Add to that stage shows, lots of dancing and costume as well as the FOOD!
We were planning on eating our way though, but as with most festivals the food was overpriced. So we decided to save some $ and instead go to a local chaat shop for a late lunch.
Overall a great festival and great day!
