Out-of-towners might not have understood the joyful reaction — which included singing and dancing — that rain got throughout Zilker Park. “I say, ‘God bless the rain,’ and we need it,” said Austin photographer Greg Davis, who for the fifth year was selling his photos in the fest’s art market. “It’s bad for business but great for the community.”

Some people used shelters put up for extra protection from the sun to escape the intermittent showers, while others didn’t let a little water keep them from staking out spots early around the stage where Motown legend Wonder was to perform.

“Our whole plan today has been to scope out a spot so that we don’t have to fight the crowds,” said Joelle Barnes of Austin, who along with her husband, James, were among the people asked to move their chairs. Although Barnes and her husband had enjoyed Alison Krauss and Union Station, Cee Lo and other performers they had seen on Saturday, the day was all about Wonder. “He’s a legend — you can’t argue with that,” James Barnes said. “This is such a rare opportunity”… [Austin360]
