The Weather at Bristol
« on: July 18, 2016, 11:47:36 AM »
Waiting for a lovely weekend forecast to jump the my car with my sister & drive 7 hours to Bristol!!  I loved the Friends of Faire garden last year - it really helped beat the heat.  I hope the weekends haven't been too brutal so far!

Was just there Saturday the 16th and although warm, the great shade and breeze made for a great day !

This coming Saturday, high of 91, around 50% humidity, and chance of a showe, 10%.

Sunday, high 86, humidity 55-75%, chance of rain during faire hours, up to 45%.

We're going Sunday, and it sounds like a typical miserable Bristol heatwave day.

In case you hadn't seen the announcement, they've increased the daily cost for the FoF area; it's now $10 instead of $5.

Bristol does have nice shady lanes.  I'm glad you had a great day Gauwyn!  I forget, is Bristol your closest-to-home festival?
Sunday's 80s sound nicer than 90s.  Think cooling thoughts & I hope you have a great time, Lady Renee!
Thanks for the tip RefMom3 - I didn't know they raised the price.  I think $10 is not the amazing deal $5 was, but still worth it.  I wish KC would implement something similar.

I'll keep watching the extended forecast & keep my fingers crossed for a tiny tad cooler! :)
And keep dreaming of cloak weather! *sigh*

Minnesota is the closest, unless you  talk small faires, then we have 1 that is only a half hour away.  But, KC, Bristol, St Louis and Minnesota are all less than 5 hours - almost the same

I was thinking we paid $10 last year... but, I had had a couple of ales...

they probably did charge YOU 10, and they figured that was a discount :)

You did pay $10...for yourself and thy Lovely Bride ;)
They also are keeping track over the season, so you're allowed a guest pass 3 time, and after that you have to buy a membership. But if you go that often, and use the Garden each time, I think it's a valid requirement.
I don't know when I'll go again. There are some performers I want to see who won't be coming until later in the season, but I'm getting that feeling that I have to "go somewhere," and Bristol is only an hour and a half away, so it's much the easier solution ;)

yes, there are some acts later in the season I would like to see, but our annual visit to Bristol only works in July.  I do really like seeing Dylan Robertson though.  Wish he would travel a bit more.
