The boss buys dinner a few times before the fair opens. Sitting down, talking and eating with everyone is the best part of the job.

 Jason surveys the food from above and prepares to strike.

Array of soda cans and nailgun on ice.

The food vendors come in a few days before opening. Here is the syrup collection from a shaved ice hut.

Throwing out all the old paint and detritus from the construction. This is a concrete symbol of being finished with the job.

Jason and Michael mounted information sheets and photographs on foamcore for more than an entire day, producing a mountain of signs for the displays.

The carillon erected outside of Building Two for the September 11th Memorial plaza.

Swan boats are very romantic, but they are only designed for first and second base. If you want to try for third, please get a hotel room. Failure to heed this warning may result in swan failure.

Girls unloading goats.

Vicki directs Michael as he hangs photos. If you look closely, you can see his Dewalt drill.

At about 2am, 7 hours before the fair begins, Mark announced, "if you think you are having a bad night, go look outside".

This Merlino's orange freeze truck had clipped a support beam on the bridge above. The bridge was holding strong, but the truck was crushed and wedged into place.

The truck crash showed up on the seismograph in the San Francisco exhibit. There is a wide spot on the right edge of the dark area, near the center of the photo.

The completed Kugel fountain, awaiting the dedication ceremony for the memorial.

The solid granite ball is engraved with the names of the people that died in the attacks on September 11th, 2001. The design of the fountain allows people to move the ball around, so they can see all of the names.

It is tempting to see how fast you can make it spin. I'm sure a lot of kids are going to get scolded for playing here.

On August 15th, the fair opened, and visitors finally make their way inside to see what we've built.
