Fluff Festival 2009

Once a year, Union Square in Somerville, MA celebrates a hometown first - the invention of marshmallow Fluff. Until this year, I had never been able to attend the What the Fluff? celebration, but as I was one of thousands that poured into Union, Saturday afternoon, I began to realize what I was missing. From high school students making and doling out fluffernutters, to kiddie games involving Fluff containers, even a Fluff baking contest, 2 different stages hosting bands and Fluff + ____ tastings... it was truly an event to behold. Did I mention that there is crowning of a Fluff queen?

Sadly, I didn't get to see the tug-of-war (losers landing in a kiddie pool of fluff). Here are some of my favorite pictures:

Fluff + _____ tastings (rumor had it one of the combos was ketchup, ewww)

Fluff cover fishing - this was right after one tike toppled into the pool!
