[photo: Chihiro Saito] The bakery balcony on the west-side of Crafts III is sheltered from the wind and the maintenance crew is installing triangular shades.More to come. A very large parachute was folded in half and strong ropes have been tied to the lines. The parachute will be mounted above the stage and connected to the finger panels around the East Crescent, to shade participants in the Colly Soleri Amphitheater. Scaffolding has been erected on the stage for parachute installation, but the weather turned cold today and very windy. Dark clouds sailed in and we had a little bit of rain. The parachute was rolled up and stored in the back of the stage for installation tomorrow or Friday. April 11, 2012Many things are happening in preparation for this years Bluegrass Festival. Additional parking has been marked out.
