The Beer Garden on the roof to the East of the amphitheater opened at 11am and did brisk business all through the day. People were able to sip their beer and watch the performance from high above.

 

As you can see, Trading Faces Face Painting did some terrific work.

 

We cannot say enough about the great atmosphere at this event. Vendors and especially the volunteers organized by the Chamber of Commerce did a great job to make people feel welcome and comfortable. 

 

Sheriffs and Mayer Firemen were on hand, incase of any emergency and there were none [emergencies]. The volunteers in the parking lot put up with heat and dust and valiantly got all the cars and people sorted out. There was a spontaneous rotating group of musicians in the Vaults, guitars, violin, mandolin, even a saw, spontaneous music from the Colly Garden, laughter and people chatting and visiting and generally enjoying the beautiful weather.
