Beautiful Weekend for the Inman Park Festival!

The 4oth Inman Park Festival is in full swing this weekend ( April 30 and May 1).  And isn’t the artwork that my friend and web design client, Jon Arge, did for the poster and tee-shirts this year absolutely fabulous?.

I’ll never forget my very first Inman Park Festival. We lived in Druid Hills( nearby beautiful but stuffy neighborhood) and came over to walk around the festival when I was a week overdue with my  first child, Amanda  (turning 25 next week) to be born. It was really hot that day and I hoped that walking around in the heat would send into labor, but the only thing I got was swollen ankles and she  took her sweet time to come another whole week later.

The Rainy Saturday Inman Park Festival 2010

Last year glorious, this year we got drenched on Saturday. Vendors all zipped up and people walking around in raincoats and umbrellas. In  the tradition of the “Show Must Go On” , it did rain or not. The parade was drenched but well and Inman Park Theatre Night fared better as the forecasted, “large hail and 30 mile an hour winds”  never showed up. The segments from  our local neighborhood, Horizon Theater at the beginning and Dad’s Garage at the end of the evening stole the show.

Today, Sunday, is supposed to be 84 degrees and sunny. It is beautiful clear skies now. I hope that people turn out and make up for yesterday. The artists really look forward to this show, putting a lot of effort into building up their inventory. Let’s go out and support them!
