So East Nashville (our hood) has a tomato fest every year, and we just happened to be here for it. It’s quite eclectic and very odd at times, but a good time nonetheless. Everything is based on tomatoes (obvi) and there are tomato eating contests (for people and dogs), tomato art, bloody mary “drink offs” and more. It was fun, and we met some cool people (including a very inebriated girl who was wearing my same dress and insisted on taking a picture with me) and loved watching the live bands. Best of all it was all only 5 minutes from our house. Did I mention Nashville is cool?
