    The festival is huge! You should go early if you want see a lot or plan on shopping-to-buy! Denice won't be able to be there until 3:00 pm. IF you want to meet us and shop together, please come to the admission gate by 3:00. If you are busy inside shopping already, but want to go out to dinner as a group .... Meet us at 6:00 pm at the gate. PLEASE POST A NOTE HERE to let us know you're planning to go out to dinner ! We don't want to leave anyone behind. Two people have suggested Buffalo Tap for dinner . Let's plan on going there when we leave the Festival. If you would like to be able to text or call us at the Festival, leave a note, and I'll email my number to you. Sometimes it's good if we exchange numbers , in case we get lost or are running late ! Denice and I look forward to a fun day and night with you !!!

    Hi, glad to have a group nearby that likes to do lots of different things. Will try to hit an event after my taxes are done!

    I go to this every year, but I'm surprised everyone is gathering so late. It's a HUGE area and it takes a very long time to go thru it all once. Place closes around 7p? so you are allowing only 4 hours to walk thru it if you meet at 3p.

    April 12, 2013

    • Kathy L

      Hi Dori please scroll down and read Denice's post to everyone ! It's important ! Thank you, Ksthy

      Happiest of Birthdays, Laurie ! Will we be celebrated how young you are on Saturday at dinner ? :)

      April 11, 2013

    • Laurie

      The alternative is too depressing so, yes; it will be a how YOUNG I am celebration ;)

    Steph ! Did you get my text message ?

    April 11, 2013

  • Colleen

    Looking forward to this. I have wanted to go to this for years, but have never been. Someone suggested Buffalo Tap for dinner. I looked at their menu and it sounds good to me.

    1 · April 10, 2013

    • Kathy L

      Colleen, I think we've met... I remember us talking. Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday ! So many things to see ans buy.... :)

    Hey everyone! Since the craft show is so big, it would be really difficult to meet up unless you go in together. When we went last year, it was very crowded and covers a big space. So, Kathy and I suggest that the people that can make it at 3pm meet in the area where you pay the admission fee. We will let everyone know later how to identify us. Then, the people who would like to go to eat can meet at 6pm at the same spot. Please let us know if you are attending so we know who to wait for!! :0) Looking forward to meeting everyone we haven't met yet!

      I've never been there, Steph. How are the Margaritas?:)

      April 10, 2013

  • Steph K.

    Also, I just called the art fair people. There is a fee for going into fair. Nine dollars for adults, seniors 62 plus is eight dollars. There is one dollar off coupons on there website which is http://www.hpifestivals.com/

    But parking is free....

    Kathy I don't know if you knew that but I had called and checked.

    1 · April 10, 2013

    • Kathy L

      Hi Steph ! The fees are correct. Go to the site above and get a coupon to save a Dollar. I'm going to talk to Denise tonight and we will come up with a place where we can all meet. Denise works and won't be able to be there until 3:00pm. I'm a LOL (Lady of Leisure)....and might to earlier !

      April 10, 2013

  • Kathy L

    OOOOPS ! I didn't talk to Denise when I wrote that INCORRECT INFORMATION down below. Denise works part of the day, so SHE is the one who made the time, 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm. You can always come earlier, of course ! But Denise will set up a place where we can all meet at 3:00 pm. We can look, buy, whatever....and whoever would like to go to dinner afterwards....
    we can do that too. It's a great way to get to know each other ! Stay tuned for a place to meet ! :) So sorry you have to work, Terri ! It's going to be fun !!!
