Despite forecasts of heavy rain, The Voodoo Music + Arts Experience at City Park made it through Saturday morning and early afternoon with little precipitation.

The day’s first heavy shower began shortly before noon but quickly stopped. Voodoo act Veridia, a dressed-in-black, heavy, hard rock band from Nashville, played its early afternoon, the first set of the day on the Carnival Stage, through only occasional drizzle and light rain.

The Voodoo audience for Veridia -- featuring vocalist and Dallas native Deena Jakoub and her gold-glitter decorated face -- grew from a handful of people to nearly 100.

“Thanks again for hanging out with us in the rain,” Jakoub said of the rain that, so far, mostly wasn’t.
