There were more places listed, but these are just the ones I'd be most interested in seeing.
17-28-- Waynesville, North Carolina, Folkmoot USA. The 30th annual folk fest attracts French stilt walkers and Irish step dancers among others. I'd go just for the name. "Where you been?" "I've been to Folkmoot!"
2nd-- Put-In-Bay, Ohio-- Bicentennial of the battle of Lake Erie. Eighteen tall ships will be there. And, then there are the bars and partying. Why go to Key West? The North Coast is better and closer to home.
16th and 19th-- Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, America's most famous speech. I am seriously considering stopping here on my way to NC for Thanksgiving.
