Weather cooperates, giving a great First Friday
Downpours and tornado warnings disrupted the morning and afternoon, but magically disappeared just before 6 p.m., leaving in their wake bright blue skies, pleasant temperatures and the perfect environment for Downtown's First Friday.
Main and Sixth Streets were packed Friday evening, with families wandering into various galleries and shops, listening to the street musicians, and poking and prodding and posing with the art spheres that made their debut this week.
On Monument Square, the Roy Edwards Band -- rained out from its noon concert -- made up for it during its encore performance. The square was filled with concert-goers on one end, children dancing around the Civil War monument or communing with one of the two carriage horses, and HarborFest's beer tent at the other end. It was a peaceful coexistence.
More Spheres pictures HERE and HERE.
