Twin Peaks Festival 2019 (Thurs/Fri)

Thursday evening Diane, entering the town of Twin Peaks.  Never seen so many trees in my life.

After hotel check in, our first destination was Reinig Bridge (Ronette's Bridge).  "Turn at the Milk Barn!"  It's now part of a pathway system so the rails are gone.

Then two cups of coffee and pie at the Double R (Twede's).  This might have been what led to the nightmares I had later, culminating in a 3am honest to god actual earthquake (4.6 on the scale).


3am earthquake (!), 5am Falls visit, Registration, donuts, DL coffee, trivia contest, celeb meet and greet, Rebekah Del Rio performance, David Lynch movie night (Blue Velvet).

Since I was up anyway post-quake, I decided Kev would enjoy a dawn trip to Snoqualmie Falls to see it in the mist.

Enthusiasm level: dubious.

We had the entire place to ourselves for an hour and a half, just the sound of the falls and my knees stiffening up.  Views ranged from this:

To, very briefly, this:

Before going back to solid mist again.  We left at 6:45 to get ready for the days events.

Fest time!  We signed in, acquired donuts and coffee and immediately found 'our people' from last year.  And some new people who are now 'our people' from this year.  As an awkward person that rarely never socializes at home, this never fails to blow my mind.

Meet and greet sessions were to be at the town hall venue this year (Twin Falls Middle School).  We managed to see Rebekah Del Rio, Sherilyn Fenn, Eric Da Re, Anthony Marcacci, Andrea Hays and Zoe McLane.  It's not your typical expo where things are rushed, all these guests took time to talk to us and ask questions, they were genuinely interested in their fans.  Also, I hugged Leo!  He was lovely.

I had to lie down in the afternoon (zero stamina) so I could get myself together for movie night.

A very special performance was on before the movie.  Rebekah Del Rio sang No Stars (with John Neff), I Love You, and Llorando.  I've never heard anything quite so beautiful in my life.

We watched a few shorts, including a Fest message from Madchen Amick and the wonderful Russ Tamblyn doing 'that crazy dance scene' in 7 Brides.  Magnificent!

Damn fine popcorn.
