When the Comet Festival was originally planned, we had hoped there would be a visible comet emerging in the morning sky.  (Actually there is--Comet Lovejoy to the north).  Comet ISON is a fading remnant of its former self, but it continues to inspire opportunities.  That's why there are no dates on the Comet Festival poster--like the comet itself, you can find ongoing enjoyment in nature's spectacles.  Hope to see you out there.
