Summerfest artists keeping an eye on the sky

Back for its 26th year, the 2009 Summerfest is bigger and better than ever. With a vast selection of art ranging from jewelry to carvings, paintings to clocks, even some art of the edible variety. As it has every year before, Summerfest, one of the biggest annual events in Logan, takes place on the Tabernacle lawn and kicked off Thursday at 3 o’clock. With live entertainment as well food and activities, vendors and bystanders alike are worried about the possibility of more storm clouds. With all the rain Northern Utah has experienced this spring, coupled with a strong chance of sever weather today, artists and vendors are paying close attention to the weather. Artists with painted products would be most affected if Mother Nature decides to send more rain clouds this way. Artist Mindi Winborg says she’s keeping her eye on the sky and is a little worried. “We’re hoping. It’s missed us so far,” says Winborg. “So we’re thinking sunny thoughts, I guess.”Most artists are prepared for wet weather with tents covering their wares and tarps at the ready. Whatever the condition, rain or shine, the turn out for Summerfest is expected to be as good as ever. Thursday saw record numbers and Friday was busy as well with ideal weather conditions.The event continues today until 10 pm. All are encouraged to come enjoy the art and tastes of one of Cache Valley’s preeminent rites of summer.
