After a year of planning, the big day has finally arrived! For our department, today is the bigger, tougher day…one that all of our planning, hiring, budgeting, and set up has hopefully prepared us for. Right now the skies look pretty clear, and the weather service has downgraded the rain forecast to 30% chance between 5pm and 8pm. Better than our outlook yesterday, but rain rain go away! Come again June 21 after 4am
In more important Rock the Garden news…Yesterday at “Rock the Garden Labs”(tm) we tested a water balloon launcher ($25.00 at Dicks Sporting Goods!) in place of the ubiquitous sporting event T-Shirt Cannon.
1) Our Chief of Operations can really catch a t-shirt!
2) The Master of the Rock the Garden Bands, Associate Curator in Performing Arts, is also the master of the 2 t-shirt shot.
Shooting off wadded up pink Rock the Garden t-shirts from a cheap water balloon launcher is as fun as it sounds! Good luck catching a shirt at the show!
See you back here next week with photos! and hopefully an interesting story or two…
