Fluff Festival Returns to Somerville, September 24, 2011
A festival that celebrates a sweet treat with roots in the Boston area returns to Somerville in September.
According to the Union Square Main Streets website, the annual "What the Fluff" fluff festival will be taking place in Union Square on Saturday, September 24, from 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM. The event, which is a tribute to Fluff creator Archibald Query (who invented the gooey spread in Union Square back in 1917), is in its sixth year now, and as always, it features an offbeat mix of artists, musical and theatrical performers, inventors, and humorists, along with a variety of food items offered (barbeque, whoopie pies, fluffernutters, and rice krispie treats will be available).
Fluff-loving VIPs this year include Susan Olsen from "The Brady Bunch," songwriter Allee Willis ("Boogie Wonderland," "Neutron Dance," "I'll Be There For You--Theme From Friends"), and NASA astronaut Rick Linnehan.
