This is “Spring Fever” weekend in Emo. This year, it also might be known as the “Cabin Fever Breakout.”
The businesses of Emo have, for more than four decades, drawn district residents together to celebrate the end of winter and the beginning of spring and summer.
Some 47 years ago, I made my first trip on my own to check out the boats at Tompkins. That spring, I had a licence to drive and my father let me borrow the family car and with my brother on a Friday night, we headed to Emo for Spring Fever Days.
I haven’t missed a “Spring Fever” weekend since.
