A Weekend of Art

This weekend was Boise, Idaho's 55th Annual Art in the Park. We've lived in Boise for four years and have never made it downtown to stroll through the art fair. On Friday, my husband and I slipped away for about two hours to head downtown to the event. It was a beautiful weekend for the art show, but we are still in the 90's!

(I took a few photos, but not any close ups of booths.....I didn't see anyone else with a camera, and wasn't sure if they were allowed. Didn't want to get kicked out on our first visit!)

There were rows and rows of booths filled with fine art, pop art, wire sculptures, jewelry, yard art, leather goods, wood carvings....and lots more!

Oh, and of course, LOTS of food!

There was even some strolling entertainment. This musician was a one man band...he strummed the guitar and jumped up and down to make his cymbals clang. I snapped a photo from behind to show his feathered wings he had attached to his instrument!??

Next year, I think we will hope for cooler weather, and make plans to stay a little longer....and maybe I'll ask if cameras are allowed so I can take some close-ups! :)

Looks like a great fair! Isn't that always the way, when you live close to something you never end up doing the local stuff!

The strolling musician looks like a lot of fun..he sure does strike a funny pose doesn't he.

:)Have a lovely evening
Hugs, Doreen

Hi Suzanne,
The art fair looks like it would be great fun! I know you had a good time looking at all the exhibits.

My Mom just got her Christmas issue of Early Am. Life and I was so proud of you for being included in the directory! That's absolutely fabulous!!
Lots of Hugs, Bebe :)
