Shooter's Comments:

I went two Fort Wayne Newspapers Three Rivers Festival events that had either been canceled or marked wrong on the events calendar. Fortunately the Children Festival at IPFW was going on as planned.

There is a little too much space between the kids and Freddie the Firetruck, but he was squirting water at them and I really like the smiles on their face.
