Lemonade Days dodges rainy weather
The first two evenings have gone on as planned despite weather
The weather has been so-so, but it hasn’t interfered with the first two evenings of Dunwoody’s annual Lemonade Days at Brook Run Park.
The festival this year started on a Wednesday, a day earlier than normal. There was some rain at the kickoff event, but scattered showers Thursday posed no problems for the festival’s 5 p.m. start.
Monica McGurk, an organizer of the festival, said she’s optimistic about the rest of the weekend.
“If it stays like it’s been, we’ll be fine,” said McGurk, with the Dunwoody Preservation Trust, which puts on the annual event.
The forecast for Friday night and the weekend isn’t looking as rainy as it did earlier in the week, but there's still a strong chance people will be dodging showers.
Accuweather is reporting a chance of thunderstorms Friday and Saturday, with rain on Saturday for several hours, but scattered. Sunday, the festival’s last day, is expected to be cooler with less rain than Saturday.
Saturday's is the festival's biggest day, with rides for the kids, artisans from around the Southeast and a schedule of evening music. and, of course, fair food.
This year, mostly because of the evening music acts, their is much more area covered by tents than in years past.
So if it does rain?
"It won't even matter because you'll be inside," McGurk said.
