Where the true purpose of the festival will unfold.

Authors will read, visual artists will show,

Into a space no one ever has seen before.

With foliage, a fountain, and suspended

To see what is up in our little town.

So don’t miss out on this unique event,

It is free so little of your money will be spent.
