NOTICE: FOLLY CARNIVAL OPENING DELAYED UNTIL NOON!

As of 8:30 This Morning:

2d Annual Folly Festival and Rube Goldberg Carnival DELAYED UNTIL 12 NOON.

But everything is going on Today and Tomorrow Rail or Shine. I hope you’ll all be there (and for my out-of-town friends, I wish you could be there…)

The Rube Carnival at the Folly is coming together…

A lot of folks, me included,have been working on finishing the Carnival project so it can come off on the 10th and 11th of September without a hitch.

I’m almost finished with the Sling Shooters booth, where folks can fire slingshots (a la Angry birds, but in real life) at targets like a clown, a werewolf and Gumbo the Rooster.

I stopped by today to watch Sally Kimmel (and others) working on painting the Tarot Cards which will line Archetype Alley.

Saturday morning we’re finishing the last clay layer on the outdoor pizza oven… and I understand that Phil Mastrangelo from Mellow Moods will be there throwing the Pizzas… he’s also setting up to sell his famous fruit smoothies.

Al Thomas will be having a trebouché shoot… Bradley Sanders will have a bamboo water wheel game. there will be a Fashion Show, live music, plenty of fun for kids and adults running from morning into the evenings of both days. We’re only 10 days away from it as I write this.

Hope I see everyone there!
