This past year, we at Greensboro Daily Photo have had the opportunity to attend so many wonderful events in Greensboro, meet some great people, and find a year's worth of interesting nooks and crannies to feature. It was really hard to pick a "Best of 2016" photo for the International City Daily Photo Community. Our local readers tend to respond most enthusiastically to posts that tell the stories of Greensboro-- like our recent ones of the Millennium Gate or the O. Henry dog statue. There is so much to love about our city. Over the past year, we enjoyed having the presidential candidates come to town. The opening of LeBauer Park was a very special occasion, too. We finally discovered Charlie and Joan at the Greensboro Grub this past year. This husband-and-wife duo does a tremendous job of fostering a sense of community in Greensboro. Also, we are fortunate to have four distinct seasons here, with each season offering great photo opportunities.
In the end, we decided to share our September 10th photo from the 2016 National Folk Festival. Having the opportunity to host the National Folk Festival, in downtown Greensboro, was pretty special. The festival was a music-packed weekend of fabulous musical acts, representing ethnicities and musical genres. Attendance in 2016 surpassed the previous year's attendance. The hope is that participation in 2017 will be even greater and that Greensboro will be able to sustain the event after the three nationally-sponsored years.
Regardless of where you live, we thank you for reading this past year and hope you continue reading in 2017. Happy New Year!
