I will be heading out around noon today. Hope the weekend isnt a lot of rain as they are predicting.

Lord Clisto

The weather I see is very small chance of rain, but plenty of heat (upper 80's - great for the noble garb). Since I am the mayor, can I wear shorts?  ::)

  Do slops and fishnets qualify as shorts?

  Does anyone have a recent picture of the grounds this year? Hopefully all the lovely flowers made it through the drought.

I made it out yesterday and the flowers didn't look as good as last year,but the ornamental grass looked really good.But all in all I would say it's coming along just fine.

  We will be out tomorrow (Sunday).  By the time we finished up here on Friday night it was just too late and we were too tired to make the drive out tot he hotel.  We will be leaving here shortly.

It was a fun weekend (well the two days we were there).  We enjoyed being Mayor and Hostess and interacting much more with the patrons and cast.

Glad to finally connect the dots with Rowan and also great meeting Sunshine.

The weather was also great 9I thought it was supposed to be hot  :P )

  Good to see you and your Lady again too, though some how we missed Sunshine.
 It was too hot for what I was wearing!  We lasted 4 hours, then were outta there.   Next weekend is Celtic and I can dress in much cooler clothing....

  Freaking amazing weather at the faire yesterday! Much cooler, sunny, and huge crowds. Standing room only at all the shows.
We met sunshine, (Thanks for the adorable favor), Lord Clisto, Have Court, will Travel, 3 pints gone,  The Mccrakken brother's Mad Scots, and many others...
 Haggis chips, frozen cheesecake, crepes and porkchops on a stick. Seriously wonderful day. Looks to be the same weather today!
 We showed up about 11:30 and it was 6:00 before we knew it, and the Closing show was in full swing.  One more day of Celts, and the Pirates take over next weekend.

I've been having a wonderful time at the faire so far! It's been lovely meeting everyone (I think it's impossible for you guys to get any nicer, really I do), and I'll have to post some pictures once I manage to get them all sorted out.

Planning to go pirate this weekend (that is, switch out the flowers in my hair for the red bandana and wear stripey socks) and soak in the ambiance. :)

  David and I plan to stop in on closing day, on our way back from the Quad cities Celtic games in Davenport. Don't know if we will dress pirate or Celt again...depends on how hard it will be to assemble the garb.

Edit:  Weather is going to be great again this weekend-sunny and 70's both days!
