“Nothing has ever been so much fun.” And with that, teenager Samuel Clark described in just a few words what Saturday’s Nothing Festival in Aggieville is all about. Described as “A Townie Holiday,” the purpose of the day is to celebrate having a little more free time, with no parades and no agendas. Clark tells KMAN he and his friends only had one thing planned for the day, and that was to get some donuts and just hang out…
Teenager Emma Landsdowne says it was a good day to do nothing, and she says that’s one of their best skills, adding as teenagers doing nothing is fun.
But for being a Nothing Festival, quite a few folks of all ages were out in Aggieville strolling on the streets and browsing at area shops and restaurants.
Brittany Ramsey, who describes herself as a book peddler at the Dusty Bookshelf, was enjoying the day, but confirmed it was a more relaxed pace, saying she saw a couple of people in their PJs.
A woman identifying herself as Merriam from Los Angeles, California, was enjoying the day in the Little Apple but admitted she had something to do–she says her Mom always wants Varsity Donuts so she purchased a variety.
The Nothing Festival is held in late May, when school’s out, summer’s just beginning, and many of us take a sigh of relief.
