After the violent weather we had on Friday, Saturday was picture perfect but Saturday night and early Sunday morning proved to be even worse weather with many artists arriving Sunday morning to find their tents no longer standing, some in the river, and artwork destroyed. I was very lucky, but of course, we had prepared by securing the tent and taking all the gourds home Saturday night,
