I went to the local Renaissance Festival a couple of Saturdays ago. I love Ren-fests, but this was the worst. It wasn't the festival's fault. It rained. At first, it was just a light sprinkle and I could live with that. But it just kept up all day and got worse and worse. The streets turned to mud and then to rivers. I was wearing my dress from last year (at least it wasn't the new one with the train) and it got horribly dirty. And it was wet up to my thighs. It was miserable and cold.
Fortunately, Oxyclean did get out most of the mud. I'll still need to dry-clean it, but at least it's not ruined.
