In our travels, Matt and I often comment on the little towns we pass through. Usually they are ghost towns that speak of bustling days gone by. Empty buildings display for sale signs mingled with a few shops that strive to breath life onto the street. But that is not the case in Frederick, Maryland. I think of Frederick as my town. In the 20 years that we have lived near Frederick, I have witnessed a beautiful transformation of the Carroll Creek area.
Friday the weather was perfect for enjoying our lovely town. So, I met a friend to listen to a band that played along the creek. It amazes me how many free outdoor concerts are held in Frederick! Along the creek, there is a amphitheatre and Bonerama was already set up when we arrived. I was surprised at how many people were able to come out at lunch time for a concert. The bluesy, jazzy music echoed along the creek, drawing people towards it, making them snap their fingers and smile.
Just one of the many times I have enjoyed the Carroll Creek promenade and I’m sure it won’t be the last. What do you enjoy about your town?
