Home County Music & Art Festival
This is a grand Music & Art Festival in London, Ontario. It is spans 3 days at the height of summer. I have never done any kind of show ever before.
I was lucky enough to be chosen for their Creative Roots Program. This is a fabulous opportunity for newbies like me to try something new with excellent support. There were 10 crafters chosen and we were all in one great tent so we had the comradery of other newer crafters close by. There are hundreds of other amazing craft and food vendors and a stunning array of musicians.
There are thousands of people attending this festival on a daily basis.
It rained.....and rained.....then the sun came out and it was a sauna. This is how the whole weekend went.
My two best girlfriends came from far and wide, well Winnipeg & St. Catharines, to help me pull this off. They were absolutely the best help anyone could ask for. We had a gas!
The tent before anyone else got there. It was hot!
Mostly set up. The rain had not started at all but it would very soon. The tent was very waterproof, but the wind kept us hopping.
My friend, Leslie pointing at the display and myself. I think this was day 2, but it is all kind of blurring. I promised to take lots of pictures, but I only managed to take a few.
My friend Sheila keeping things organized. She was also the one to scope out the best food vendors and return with treats. She also made us healthy lunches.
This was such a big experience for me I will have to do another post on the preparation for this. I am so glad I had this experience. I have been retired for less than 2 years and it is nice to know I can try something totally new and enjoy it all.....well, maybe most of it.
