This wax statue caught many people of guard, some thinking Robin Williams was at the festival.
This was the Cooking Stage. Local chefs whipped up a meal in less than 40 minutes, sounds like a scene from Top Chef doesn't it?
And the protests and protesters, this sign was welcoming to many of the anti-congress, anti-Obama, group that had been marching to the Capitol (about 9 or so block away from festival).
I am told my a friend who walked thru the rally that there were a lot Pro-Fox News and Anti the so called Liberal Media signs at the Teaparty rally...
