Artown opened last night- just a few sights from the afternoon.
This is such a wonderful part of the summer here in town. It is the sixteenth year Artown has been around and each year is full of so many awesome artists of all kinds.
I am glad I had the chance to make it down for the opening event yesterday afternoon and evening.
I was let out of work early (more about work later, it’s a little crazy right now and I am off for two weeks until the dust settles.)
(Fifi had just fallen asleep at daycare, so I opted to leave her there to rest.
It was a fun date for O and I)
The sidewalk chalk was a huge hit with the boys.
There was a mural you could help to paint.
Bubbles to blow and catch.
The Discovery Museum (opening in mid September) was there with t-shirts for the kids to color.
All of these things were in preparation for the 7pm ‘parade’ from McKinnely Art’s Center to Wingfield Park- music provided by the March Fourth Marching Band.
We marched along, but O was a tad freaked out by all the people and loud
(how can a kid who is so loud himself, not like loud? I don’t get it.)
Needless to say my camera was in my bag while we followed along with all the excitement.

Let art rule!!!
