    So this festival was a bit hot for most, which I think killed the afternoon crowd. As always Pinebox Serenade and the Spitfire Tumbleweeds put on a good show and Paul Slavens was as funny as ever shooting from the hip for a little $ from the crowd. I forsee next year being even better as Wine2 is going to move to the Locust side of the square to a 2,000 sq. ft. space which will accomodate a much larger crowd wanting to escape the heat. All in all good times, and I am definitely looking forward to next year.
