Huntington Fall Festival: Green Party, music, sunshine

Ian and I went and worked the Fall Festival in Huntington for two days. What is work for us? Two days of a volunteer effort to stroll the festival with McKinney for President signs and hand out literature. We realized that we had to add “peace signs” and messages to our otherwise plain campaign signs.

We got a pretty good response. Some thumbs up for the Green Party. A few people seeing our signs and asking good questions and/or asking for literature. In two days and thousands of people, only 3 or 4 argued with us as if we were getting in the way of the Democrats. We had the chance to interact with important political players: The League of Women Voters who were registering voters; the Nader people who had a table and 3 volunteers; Jeff Peress, a green from Nassau who also helped us with the Cynthia fliering; a local (somewhat progressive) Republican candidate who loves the Green Party and gave us a thumbs up every time we went by; and Suffolk County Legislator Jon Cooper who is the Long Island Obama person and is still trying to convince us why War in Afghanistan is the right thing to do.

Politics is such a charged arena. When you do even a little political work, bold and strange things seem to happen. You never know who you’ll meet or what conversation you will find yourself in.

The Huntington Fall Festival is so much fun. And, it is a great day for it. It is still going on. Sunday 11am to 10pm. And, then Monday, a little bit smaller, without the street closings, from 11am to 5pm. A great place to go for live music, and to see the local politicians. (But, be prepared to warn your children away from military recruiters, and a painted up, tricked out hummer that the Marines are using to lure children around them. ) On the bright side, we saw some old friends and we ate some delicious roasted corn. And, we found Mike Soloway singing a sea chanty, and Gathering Time who played music on and off all day Sunday.
