- A view of Wakarusa from this morning.
Greetings from Mulberry Mountain, where Wakarusa has been under way since Thursday. The weather has improved considerably from yesterday. It’s now pleasantly cool as opposed to jacket-required chilly and the rain has gone away.
Not that the gloomy weather kept anyone from having a good time yesterday. In fact, judging from what I observed, a lot of these festival warriors were utterly unfazed by a little wind, rain and chill. They danced and laughed and twirled their glo-sticks and I spied a few of them totally mugging down on the ground in the mud. Chemicals might have played some part in these folks’ good cheer, though of course it’s impossible to know for certain.
After the jump, I’ve got the first of several music reviews I’ll be posting from Waka veteran Kristal Kuykendall, managing editor of the Carroll County News. Later on, I should have some video to post from photojournalist Martin Couch.
