On the page: From Bridget Held: my son and I had lots of fun even though we were in 2 thunderstorms today while there! I went running in the heat and humidity, and the rain felt really good! we were dancing and running in the rain and got soaked! Lots of fun! we're not going to melt and we only live once!!

On the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair page: From Agnes Thorne: Seriously, there's going to be a great deal of loss this year. Tonight our not for profit booth and all our product was lost in the river of water that flowed down Liberty. We saw hats, shoes, product, pictures, and misc other floating down the middle of the road tonight. So sad!

From Sarah Devereaux: My husband and I were there this evening and we felt so bad for the exhibitors caught in the monsoon. Hang in there!! We'll be back tomorrow!

From Reveln Consults: The potters and jewelry artists have some protection of their medium. All the others, I hope they are ok & look to cheer you on Saturday.

On the story "Merchants' sidewalk sales can be another big draw of Art Fairs week": From northside: And townies are left to wonder why such good sales exist only when large numbers of visitors are here ...

On the story "Fairgoers respond: What do you like best about the Ann Arbor Art Fairs?": From Craig Lounsbury: what I like best is 6PM Saturday. I go once every 5 years whether I need to or not. Same with bowling.

From MjC: I love how how our town is transformed into this beautiful and crazy world of creative art. It's energizing and, yes, exhausting - but I look forward to it each and every year.
