I was lucky enough to win tickets to the AC Food and Wine Festival so I’m excited to check that out on Saturday. I love conventions and I love food so having both together will be awesome! I would also love to go to the Music Festival in Liberty State Park but the admission prices are steep. Hope you guys get to take advantage of these cool events in NJ this weekend!
