The 2002 Night Walk never got published here. I must have had something bad befall me that fall. Half the festival pages did not get written. I think I gave all my old digital photos to Lenny for his archives. This is the perfect time for that old saw, “You oughtta been there!  It was so fabulous. There will never be another like it.”  But who is to say! Next year may be the best ever.  Any Night Walk your personally attend will be the best ever, for you.
