Some people adopt nicknames like Katie and Jimmy. But one Sixties-era hippy, known as a passionate humanitarian, preferred a catchier moniker: Lumpy Sue. The fifteenth annual Lumpy Sue Acoustic MusicFest, founded in 1982 by Sue herself, will feature live music, raffle prizes, and a relaxing alternative to the biggest shopping day of the year. The free event will be held today from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Greynolds Park to benefit Habitat for Humanity.
I expect this to be the best Lumpy Sue ever, says Bruce Grayson, event director, who declares that Lumpy Sue attendees are the mellowest, friendliest, most good-hearted human beings in our community. According to the Website, rumor has it that Sue herself will attend if she can pull herself away from her gourmet health food store and soup kitchen in Fort Myers.
