Susan says: This event is amazing. It's probably the biggest painting event in the USA. You should go. Some extra things you might want to take (see website for more info):
* hand cleaner
* towels (ice water->head and shoulders)
* rollers and extensions
* camera supplies
* folding chairs you can easily carry
What not to bring: giant SUVs. It's super hot and dusty and the road is narrow.
Tip: Hotels with pools will be just the thing.
