Merchant Street Day Two

Day two of the Music Fest was even better than day one. The weather started out overcast and we were worried about rain. By 3:00 all the clouds were gone and the blistering sun was beating down again. It didn't seem to stop people from coming out though. By sundown the place was packed with tons of serious dancers enjoying Chicago Afrobeat and Liquid Soul. Even the sloped lawn in front of the local stage was filled for Jaik Willis, Mykel Boyd, e3po and Poundcake. The final count of art and craft vendors is still up in the air, but I'm sure it was more than thirty, which was much better than we expected. We sold enough stuff to make it worthwhile and, more importantly, had a lot of opportunities to promote Feed. Best of all, Jessica made it back from Maine.
