Tomorrow's scheduled Opening Day for the Ballston Arts & Crafts Festival is a go: "So, I know what the weatherman has forecasted, but I say phooey! The Market is on rain or shine--and I really believe it's going to shine," reports the fest's blog.
We're really not gonna mess with anyone who says things like "phooey." (No, really -- did you see Kathy Bates in "Misery"?)
So unless it's a torrential downpour -- in which case, call (202) 536-9714 to whine (or ask for an update, whatever) -- get ready to browse products from vendors such as BoxBoy Demented Decoupage (our fave from his old Eastern Market Days), Herban Lifestyles and really, really weird puppets -- no, really. You'll be seeing them in your sleep. Don't say we didn't warn you.

5/9, 6/13, 7/11, 8/8, 9/12 & 10/10 in Welburn Square at Ballston Metro
