We did go to the Jerry Brown Arts Festival this weekend – it was busy! In fact, when we got there, one of the volunteers said that early Saturday morning, the entire Wal-Mart parking lot (this year’s event was in the old W-M building in Hamilton) was completely covered up.
There were 52 confirmed artists, but I didn’t see three on the list that I was looking for: Lonnie Holley, Chris Clark, and Tom Henry. We got there mid-afternoon on Saturday, and besides a $1000 face jug and some small cup-size ones, these were the only face jugs Jerry Brown had left:
(which I liked because they had the kind of hat JB always wears, but it wasn’t the kind of thing I just *had* to take home) And maybe it is just this economy, but we actually left without buying a single thing. There wasn’t anything I just couldn’t leave without. Next year we will have to get there earlier – I have a feeling that all the really wonderful pieces were already gone by the time we got there.
On the way out, Av saw a sign outside for “fried moon pies”. Yes. I guess it was just the novelty of the thing. Well, at least he didn’t eat the whole moon pie!
