I returned to the festival early on day three to take some more photos and talk with friends. Great artwork and marvelous people.

All the artists seemed to recover well from the Sunday morning wetting. When I take visitors to Santa Barbara on the typical tourist venues it is fun to see that many of the images are still visible months afterwards. The colors fade, quickly with foot, car traffic and weather add their patina but the spirit lives.

Mark your calendars for the 31st edition for Memorial Day Weekend 2017. Hope to see you there.
