All day rain didn't alter Philly Art Museum festival

- It was standing room only at the Art Museum, mostly because the bleachers were soaking wet. The dancers taking part in the FringeArts Super Grand Continental were soaked as well.

“Rain gear – we’re rain gear ready,” said Michelle Johnson.

Part of the Fringe Festival – come rain or come shine.

The young ladies of the Rocky Fountain Group were not about to wimp out.

“Had to do it, so I got ready for it and now I’m here,” said Nydia Monroe.

“I had to take off my jacket,” Claudia Levin Dorko laughed.

And, they weren’t even the ones with their heads in pools of rainwater.

“We mostly feel bad for the adults because they were the ones who had to lay on the ground, but we are freezing right now,” Archelle Weston explained.

The girls still went back for a second performance.

“Show must go on for her. She said she all in the show, so she must go on,” Michelle Johnson stated about her daughter, Archelle.

“It was exciting and it was fun,” exclaimed Arianna Rom.

And, when everybody was invited to dance, they didn’t care how wet they were, they were loving it.
