Getting the Petting Zoo animals to safety
before an upcoming storm


A severe storm with 50-60 mph gusts
just about blows the tents away


Festival-goers get out of their seats and hold on to poles to keep the tents from collapsing - what a valiant effort on holding down the fort or should we say tents


It's amazing how everyone joined forces when the
storm came . . .great job everyone!

Weather causes many vendors to have an early exit


The winds calm, but the rain continues for awhile

The storm goes through and Clay Bowser takes
the stage as the show goes on and things get back to normal

Everyone rises as Clay ends his performance
with his rousing edition of "God Bless the USA"
