Despite the raindrops and cloudy skies, thousands still flocked to Quebec Street for one of Guelph's most anticipated summer events.
White exhibitor tents bloomed like mushrooms in the rain while artwork, exhibitors and fans flooded the area with activity and high spirits. Street performers wowed crowds with entertaining feats of balance, agility, and showmanship. Musicians roved on stilts and popped up at various tents to serenade.
Under colourful umbrellas and jackets - or simply embracing the wet - visitors roamed from tent to tent taking in sights and taking home treasures from impressive displays of ceramics, jewellery, paintings, photography, sculptures, textiles and more artwork that is less easily described but no less worth seeing and buying.
