Everyone seemed to be enjoying the food

Bad Things about this Art Fair:
It should not have been listed on Zapp. The people did not come for an artfair. 75% of the show was food & drink. 20% loud banging music & 2% exhibitors.

Don't do it!

Additional Commentary on this Show:
Our sales were under $100. We stood all day watching people EAT! With bad weather reports on Friday night & bad sales (& obviously not an art fair) we decided to tear down on Saturday night & get out while the getting was good - no jockeying for a parking place or trying to get out with the crowd in such crowded circumstances.

Sunday morning we got an email from Paragon to get in & pack up because of the weather approaching.
