Peralta Junction

My favorite part of living in the Bay Area is that there are constantly new things popping up. Needless to say, when I heard about the pop-up carnival that recently occupied a once-abandoned lot in West Oakland, I was dying to go.  Inspired by depression-era traveling circuses, the carnival featured works by local artists and lots of yummy treats, courtesy of a rotation of Bay Area food trucks -an urban amusement park brought to life each weekend in October and November.

Unfortunately the carnival has been cancelled for this coming weekend (its final) due to anticipated stormy weather, so I won’t get the chance to go. If it comes around next year, I’ll be first in line!

Vintage circus wedding

It’s no surprise that we love a circus theme here at Ruby Press, so you can imagine the thrill I got out of finding this vintage circus inspired wedding! The details- from the velvet curtain framing their nuptials, fried delicacies, curious entertainment, and the bride’s top hat veil – were absolute perfection. An unforgettable affair for the guests, I’m sure!
