Adventure number 1: Upland Lemon Festival
Upland is just barely in the Inland Empire, it's too white and wealthy to accurately portray the essence of the I.E., but nonetheless we include it in our show. For boring facts about the city visit the wikipedia page. For more enjoyable opinions I suggest urbandictionary. Here is post number three:
So many haters. Truth be told, if I was wealthy and living in the I.E., I'd pick Upland or Rancho for my abode. Does that make me pretentious? The houses along the foothills are gorgeous and I absolutely love the greenery of Euclid Avenue. Alas, I am but an unemployed, community college student, living in my parents home.
There was a general abundance of lemonade and fair booths, but an overall absence of lemon variety. Clearly, the festival is celebrated more out of tradition for the once thriving citrus business that blossomed in our homeland. There isn't much left of that today. Or maybe there is and we are just unaware of it? Perhaps we will do some research.
Regardless of the lack of lemons at the festival, it is still a nice event. It makes suburbia feel a little small town. Walking along main street (9th Street) feels like I'm walking through Stars Hallow on an episode of Gilmore Girls. If only we had the witty banter of Rory and Lorelai to offer to you, our viewers.
note: The first episode had no forethought or preparation, I just knew if we didn't do something soon we'd never do something because our habit of procrastination and laziness would control our inaction. Therefore, enjoy but don't be too critical. Just critical enough that we feel motivated to do another show that is better.
