    Brent and I attended only the festival which began at 10. Quite small but some lovely crafting. Beautiful area, a sacred space and ceremony was held. Lovely walk as well.

      It looked like the vendors set up in that side sacred space oak area to the south of the race starting line. It was quite small tho. It didn't begin till 10, after the race. I got a lovely hand made jewelry set too : )
