Cheers for mobile food, beer festivals

I wanted to say a big thank you to the team at Experience Everett for putting together last weekend’s “Experience Everett Mobile Food Fest” and the “Everett Craft Beer Festival.” It was amazing to see all the effort come together with great food, beer, and music. Another big thank you goes to the city of Everett for helping to make this possible and for their vision in making the improvements to that block of Hoyt Avenue, which lent the event an attractive, fun, and clean venue. Bravo all around to the vendors, officials, volunteers, and our fellow citizens for a great weekend! I hope this kind of festival becomes a regular and, perhaps, more frequent activity during the summer in our hometown!
