All Comers Track Meet

Have I mentioned how much I adore summer in Rochester? There is so much going on right now; the strawberries are ripe for picking at Firefly Berries (formerly Sterling Berries), the Rochester Farmer's Market and Thursdays on 1st are both in full swing, and this week is Rochesterfest!

A friend recently told me about the All Comers Track Meets. They are held Tuesdays at 6 p.m. in June and July at Soldiers Field Track. Races are held for kids ages 2-10 (kids can be older but that seemed to be the oldest tonight) and everybody gets a ribbon. It is fun to see how the tiny ones "race" and an enjoyable, free way to spend a summer evening.

What is your favorite thing about summertime in Rochester?
