In spite of the pandemic and Arizona competing for the most new COVID-19 cases per day,
the show must go on. As I had read somewhere awhile back they have decided to widen the aisles and have one-way traffic flow. That should make everyone safe.
The one and only time I went in the tent was back in 2019. Well make that two times I went in. The first time it was so packed we were shuffling along at cat speed and I just wanted to get of there, and in doing so I forgot to take any pictures. So I went back a couple days later for you folks and the blog photo. Fortunately that day wasn’t like being in a cattle chute at the Chicago stockyards.
In this photo from 2019 you can clearly see how widening the aisle and having everyone walk the same direction will solve any problem of an infected one spewing COVID cooties on others.
Trust me, my first visit was so packed I couldn’t see any vendor on either side. I was hemmed in tightly stuck behind an old lady with a walker. I was pushed along for a quarter of the way through before a hole opened up and I made a dash for a side exit.
