Outdoor Events in Corridor Go On, Rain or Shine
CEDAR RAPIDS (CBS 2/ FOX 28)-- Vendors like Julianna Berg have been getting ready for this day all year.
“It was rainy,” said the cupcake vendor. “It was going to be dreary, and we’re saying I hope people still come out,” Berg said.
Saturday marked the first day of Newbo City’s farmer’s market and despite the gray skies that hovered above, hundreds of shoppers looking for fresh food, still poured into the market rain or shine.
The on and off showers did little to stop artists at this year’s “Chalk the Walk: in Mount Vernon from paving the street in masterpieces.
“We have Michelangelo’s ‘David’ that I’m not done with yet, Peata, Moses,”said artist Tyler Roos of his black and white drawing on 1st street.
This is the 8th year of the outdoor event where 80 local artists use the blocked off parts of the street as their own personal canvasses—wet or dry weather.
“The nature of this festival is that if it rains, there’s not a whole lot we can do about it,” said event chairman Scott Rose.
“It’s one of those things that I wouldn’t miss,” Roos said.
