If you read my last post, I talked about the Genoa Cowboy and Music Festival briefly. It was three days of art, music, food, poetry, workshops and fabulous weather to crown the first annual event. Ron and I worked our respective shops for the duration of the weekend and weren't able to participate or view alot of the events, but there was a kickoff party held all over town so we got a good feel for what was happening then. We met scores of interesting and talented people, our shops were packed for the duration, I don't know if the town made any money but I would call the event a smashing success. No bar room fights, though the potential was certainly there with the influx of Cowboys, Indians, Bikers and whiskey. I shot some pics of some of the interesting faces about town when I could. This event kicked off Thursday afternoon, went through day and night of Friday and Saturday....ended with Cowboy Church (!) and a pancake breakfast at the Masonic Hall....My sorry little batch of pictures doesn't even begin to touch what was going on....re-enacted gunfights in the middle of town while volunteers zip around in golf carts. It was a very carnival like atmosphere, but truly different than the huge Arts and Crafts Fair we have every year.
