Ashley Lalong will be bringing out her costume head dresses as well. We will be spotlighting our vendors over the coming months so you can get to know them and their goods, and have a wishlist ready for the fest.
Sponsoring this year, as always, is Think Piece Productions and Bridge City Productions, and many more amazing local and regional business' to be announced soon.
