Phil, were you there? If so then please share your thoughts, and perhaps you picked up the brochure with the recipe for Dandelion Wine in it.

This is a few days after the fact, but the following newspaper article describes the events that occurred at this year's Dandelion Wine Fine Arts Festival, held last Saturday in Ray Bradbury's home town of Waukegan, Illinois. Events relating to Ray included a reading of his play based on his story, "The Whole Town's Sleeping", and having people paint either their idea of what the tennis shoes that played such a prominent role in DANDELION WINE might have looked like, or their own personal favorite tennis shoes:
