I am going along rain hail or sunshine.

It's supposed to be wet in the morning and clear up in the afternoon. They had a rotten day last year so I hope they get at least some sunshine. They put so much effort into the gala. Great day.

way too many "art" stalls this year i thought.

took me half an hour and a whole loop of the area to find a burger stall lol

Ha ha. Good to see you posting, tig. I enjoyed GOW and we hung out in Offshore when the rain came on. I enjoyed a good chat with some Canadians. I wasn't on the burger hunt but wonder if there was less outoor sizzling because of the rain?
