Weather holds for Lope Fest

South Boston News
With Tropical Storm Andrea bringing heavy rainfall for parts of the day Thursday and Friday, prospects for Virginia Cantaloupe Festival seemed iffy as the event approached late Friday — but the skies held and festival goers who braved the forecast had a grand time at Berry Hill Resort, which staged the festival for the first time. Slow-cooked pork barbeque, hand-made potato chips and cole slaw, all prepared on site by Berry Hill’s staff, were a big hit and the music was outstanding, said Kim Blanks, publicity chairman. Under tents stationed on the front lawn of the mansion, guests enjoyed dancing, chatting and partying. Out in the open, guests needed umbrellas during some of the wetter moments. (David Conner photo)
