The Jesse White Tumblers made their annual appearance at Riverfest today. The weather was cooperating and big crowds seem likely for tonight's events including closing Saturday headliner CeeLo Green.  And then there's Sunday.

Consider this an open line. And don't forget to sign a petition supporting impeachment of Jason Rapert.
