It's Artica weekend, The Lou's annual beyond the fringe arts festival. It takes place in desolate, post-industrial ruins along the Mississippi north of the Arch. Only the most adventurous show up. I was honored that the executive director gave me one of their artist's stickers for my camera bag.
The weather was miserable for much of the day, with showers and falling temperatures.They got the traditional parade in before it was too bad. Everyone walks to the river's edge and, if they want to, floats something down the mighty river with their wishes for now and the future.
Lots more to come.
