Recent political promises of unleashing both “fire and fury” on North Korea in an attempt to deter them from conducting any military strikes against the US in the near future, has put a real damper on summer fun this week.
However, event organizers with Crave Food + Music Festival are hoping Lexington will dance away their fears to the sounds of 11 different bands, and stock up on potential bunker goods from some of over 50 food trucks.
“Sure greed and fear of impending nuclear war plagued the 1980s but things have changed drastically,” explained event organizer Janet Carter. “For instance, one thing the cold war was missing was friendly neighbors brewing and serving ice cold craft beer. Back then families were fearing for their future, rather than enjoying the now.”
Carter, with a joyful hopefulness we should all try and find within ourselves said, “Just try and tell me you’re worried about the wonderful world we live in disappearing like sand through your fingers, when you’re hopping around in a bounce house, or getting live cooking lessons from local celebrity chefs!”
With a glimmer in her eye, and an unwavering happiness in her voice she added, “It can be hard to live up the summer fun while knowing a nuclear winter is coming but by golly we’re gonna try.”
