Well, this festival was a wet and soggy one indeed. We got soaked to the skin on Friday, packed up early because the ground was so soggy we were ankle deep in water and mud. Day two, Saturday, it was cold and cloudy, but no rain. Sales were slow to nothing on Friday and by noon on Saturday, we had taken in $3. Then around 2 p.m. another face painter swooped in with a bigger sign, set up closer to the entrance point, and grabbed a lot of kids, then swooped back out around 3:30. There was supposed to be kid's activities, i.e. a climbing wall, beyond where we were set up, but they never showed up. I was supposed to be the only face painter. I don't want to judge this show by what the weather might have affected, but it's not one I will put on my calendar for next year unless I'm desperate for punishment.
