As the night deepened so did the rain showers. Sporadic at first, and then more persistent. It had no effect on the enormous nightly Festivus bonfire, whose logs seemed to outnumber the raindrops by a good margin. A few umbrellas popped up here and there, but you didn’t have to stay very long at the fire (or even be very close to it!) to dry off. The music also made a compelling case to leave the fireside and go get wet for a while dancing. All in all the perfect scene for a post-midnight midsummer party.
Thought for the day, from festival founder and organizer David Pransky: “Don’t let the rain get you down. Rain, it’s good for the plants and flowers and it’s good for us. Rain is life.”
