Yesterday was not exactly an ideal day for an outdoor event. It was overcast, a bit cool, with a light drizzle on and off throughout. That’s a risk you take with outdoor functions and usually organizers will hedge their bets by arranging for a tent. The problem is, that on an overcast day, a dark tent can make it seem even more dreary.
The Voices for Children Spring Charity Festival in the Wine Bin parking lot solved the problem by having a completely transparent tent. It made an otherwise dreary afternoon comfortable.
There is a risk in doing this though. On the few moments that the sun peeked through the clouds, the see through tent heated up like a greenhouse. Fortunately for Voices for Children, those moments were rare yesterday.
