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
