  1. Hello, I’m looking forward to it. This is the 3rd year in a row it’ll be my niece, her grandpa, and myself going. What if it rains, will it be cancelled?

    • Hello Bernard- Great to hear from you. Glad you plan to attend with your niece and her grandpa again this year- the festival has always been, and will continue to be about families and fun together. The festival is a GO! The forecast calls for a mix of some clouds and sun, much like earlier today with a slight chance of showers (20%) at last report. We like our chances and the festival will not be cancelled or postponed this year. BTW a fun fact about the chances of precipitation- the chance is actually a measure of the amount of land mass in the forecast area that could see some form of precipitation- so for instance, 20% of the land mass in our forecast area could see some form of precipitation tomorrow. As Mark Twain, there are lies, damn lies, and then there are statistics. See you there!
