It was crazy hot because it's Maryland in July and the humidity sits at a steady 99% from now until mid September, which is just painfully hot. We slathered ourselves in sunscreen but it all melted off within the first ten minutes because everyone got burnt (I'm convinced I got burnt because my camera strap rubbed the sunscreen off. Blah). But for the first ever festival they've held it was a lot of fun - lots of vendors and bands and food. I can't wait to see how they grow over the years!
Marizabeth and her Bear throw every year and I found myself double-fisting with a drink and a bottle of aloe for my burnt shoulders. Sadly I didn't get any pictures because my camera immediately died as soon as I got there, but it was a lot of fun. Pretty mellow for the most part, and I had a lot of good conversations and saw some faces that I don't get to see very often. All in all a good night!
Did you do anything exciting? Battling any sunburn yourself? I tell you what - stick the aloe in the fridge. It feels wonderful!
