Much of Courthouse Square in downtown Quincy became a pedestrian zone Saturday for Quincyfest. This year the event, presented by Quincy Main Street, brough out young and old to enjoy the live music and dance, vendor merchandise and tempting treats. A children’s activity area, including a drumming circle, drew the younger set to play. Pictured here, many Quincyfest visitors took the opportunity to ride Segways through the streets of Downtown Quincy.

East Gadsden played Bolles High of Jacksonville in a playoff game at home.
Jags fall to Bolles

This past Saturday,  East Gadsden’s playoff run ended on their home floor against Bolles High of Jacksonville. The Jaguars came out with a lot of energy and confidence at the start of their regional final game against Bolles High, and after a big 8-point quarter by Amaru Bryant, they held a 13-12 lead at the start of the second quarter.

Buckwheat’s, a new place in town just opened.
I was close to ecstatic when I realized the second word, (in much smaller print), after “Buckwheat’s,” was “BBQ.”
One of my all-time favorite things to do in this lifetime was to get up early and meet my good friend Joe Faggione for a hearty breakfast of buckwheat pancakes.
Now I search far and wide and cannot find a restaurant that serves those delicious, dark buckwheats.
