The GBF is ON! Show us your best rainwear!!

Posted By: Robin Materese

May 20, 2016

A little “liquid sunshine” isn’t going to dampen our spirits! (Because, yes, we are a “rain or shine” event, so the show will go on.)

Don your best rainwear and share pictures via Twitter or Facebook using #GBF tomorrow (May 21) when you’re at the festival. Let’s show Mother Nature we can still have fun – no matter what she throws at us!  Our festive rain gear will also be a clear sign of how much we love our writers.

FYI – for those who are still concerned, the festival would only be cancelled if the weather is so severe (think: hurricane, severe lightning, high winds, tornadoes) that it poses a threat to the safety of our visitors, participants and staff. Right now, we’re not looking at anything severe; just 1/2 an inch to an inch for the day, which isn’t ideal, but it’s manageable. So we’ll see you tomorrow, and look forward to checking out the great rainwear fashions you’ll be sporting. It will be a wonderful time!
