TULSA, Oklahoma -

It wouldn't be Mayfest without a little rain, and Thursday afternoon, on opening day, the festival was hit with a steady downpour.

A Mayfest rookie, Chad Kernodle and his wife make mosaic pieces in all shapes and sizes. We caught up with him Thursday, while he prepared the booth for their company, Mosaic Madness.

"It all started as garden art, bird baths and stepping stones," Kernodle said.

Then a friend wanted a mirror, kind of like the one hanging on the front of his booth.

"After that first piece, we did a lot more mirrors and wall hangings," he said.

Hey said they've been at it for 11 years or so, but have never been to Mayfest.

"This is the first year we actually got in and had a chance to do it," Kernodle said.

This is the first of four consecutive weekends of art and music festivals for Kernodle. Next week, he heads to Oklahoma City, then Medina, Minnesota, and finally Salina, Kansas.

"I don't know if we've ever pulled off four in a row like that," he said.

The days are long at these events, so Kernodle's daughter, Katy, and her friend, Lindsay, came along to help.

As we chatted, folks kept stopping by to look, but no one was buying. Yet.

"The economy was never bad for us," Kernodle said.

Hopefully, that holds through the weekend.

Mayfest runs through 6 p.m. Sunday in downtown Tulsa.
