Fall California Tour

Mackie and I just returned from the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival and Danville Fall Festival; both of these are in California. The weather was absolutely beautiful! Well Sunday was a little gray in Half Moon Bay.

We have three shows remaining this year and they are all posted on our website at www.cliftonmetalworks.com . Mackie will be in Pasco and Spokane in Novemeber, and I'll be in Olympia in November too. These will be our final shows until next summer when we'll be in Walnut Creek during the first week in June at their art and wine festival.

The Candy Dance

An art show takes once each year in Genoa, Nevada called the Candy Dance. It started about 80 years ago with the local ladies made candy and danced in the streets to pass out the candy.

Genoa is near Carson City, Nevada and one of our favorite art shows of the year. The weather is crisp and cool in September and Genoa is one of the cutest communities that we've ever been in. There are no street lights and only one stop sign that I can think of. The town places straw bales at all of the streets about a mile from the center of town and haul the people in on hay wagons.

About 40,000 people show up from all over to attend the art show, buy some candy, and help out the local community.

If you get a chance, come and see us at the Morman Station State Park in Genoa, Nevada each September.
