Who would have thought that our crowds for First Monday in May would be like a fall crowd. Yes, we have had crowds all three days so far. Parking lots are full and crowds in the aisles just like we see in October/November. They have been on the loud speakers in our pavilion asking people that have double parked to move or be towed. You can not get out on your cell phones due to the number of hits on the cell tower in the area. I’m sure my air card will be a little slower when I post this tonight.
All the restaurants in town last night had long lines in the evening for dinner. Our wait at Papadales was thirty minutes last night and there were still people standing in line when we left. Sandy’s sister Pam and her husband Mike dropped by yesterday evening and they couldn’t believe the traffic. It took them about forty minuets to get into the parking lot. Tonight we plan on eating at the motorhome because we know the crowds will be heavier at all of the eating places.
The weather has manage to stay nice even though we had a thunder storm come up yesterday evening right before closing. It rained off and on most of the night but today we awoke to a beautiful blue sky with temperatures around 78F.
Not only was the crowd great the best of all is they came to buy. Our sales have reflected a Fall show. Sandy has sold out a lot of the primary colors in both the small and medium size purse inserts. Who would have guessed it. May is normally a mediocre month for most of us here in Canton but not this one. We are soooo great full particularly since we are about to go through the summer months where the crowds are not as good.
Here are a couple photos of the parking nightmare. The Kentucky Derby this evening was such a great race even though the track was muddy. Jockey Calvin Borel rode Super Saver to victory in the 136th Kentucky Derby. Borel has won three of the past four Kentucky Derby's. At one point of the race all the horses appeared to be the same color due to all the mud they were throwing up. What about the guy who took home $900.000.00. The NASCAR Sprint Cup 300 mile race at Richmond tonight is about to start. Boogty,,,Boogty…Boogty.
Until next time….MtnAire Travlers..
