The 2019 SPARC Fest started off a little rainy in the early hours during setup, but cleared up before the official start time to make for a very nice day.  Many people commented that it was the best turn out yet with an unofficial count of over 50 vendors.  The SPARC Dogs were a big hit as well as the donuts.  We look forward to next year!
