Artists get creative to stay warm during arts festival | News
EDMOND, Okla. – We started this week with temperatures in the 80s and we’re finishing it with record lows.
The colder weather is making it challenging for those people who have to be outside this weekend.
Wonderful people and weird weather as hundreds of artists gather for the Downtown Edmond Arts Festival, they’re dealing with winter-like conditions in May.
“I don`t know, I think it`s pretty bizarre too,” Merriman said. “I’ve been hearing a lots of locals talking about how crazy it is.”
Teresa Merriman and her husband are from Colorado.
She said it’s warmer there than it is here, so she’s finding ways to cope.
“I did buy myself a nice hand-knitted shawl, so that helps,” Merriman said.
“You weather the storm in Oklahoma, whatever it is,” Bryanne Wallace said, Chairman of the Downtown Edmond Arts Festival. “We’ve been through thick and thin. It’s going to be a gorgeous weekend, I think.”
A gorgeous weekend with a little chill in the air that may make some people get creative in their ways to stay warm.
“As long as you keep moving around, maybe jumping jacks!” Merriman said.
You can visit the Downtown Edmond Arts Festival Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
