Art in the Park

Busy weekend this weekend. PB was ‘working’  (well, more like playing!!) all day proving the sound for the musicians at this event.

The Advertising Postcard.

It’s a local annual arts weekend – music, dance, visual arts and kid’s activities. Well, this year they stopped calling the creative activities ‘kid’s activities’!!! I made a mosaic tile – but I got so busy making it, that I forgot to take photos!!! LOL When I get it back (the lady is going to grout them) I’ll take a picture!

I didn’t take pictures of the ‘professional’ artists that  were exhibiting and selling their art works – they often aren’t too happy if you do.  But here are a few snaps of some of the other stuff that was going on.

The venue is “Shantytown,” which is a kind of a pioneer village that is one of the tourist attractions around town. I have been here heaps of times, as most schools take part in the education programme at least once a year.

But this weekend I saw it in a totally different light.  Humming and busy – with over 2000 people passing through during the weekend.

There was lots of different bead work for sale.

I'm not quite sure what this one was about!

One of the "children's" activities!!!

More "children's" work - or not!

The 'belly dancers' were my favourite. Amazing colour & movement.

  1. That looks like something I wold go to 😉 How fun! I can’t wait to see your mosaic!

  2. Looks like another fun event that you both attended/were involved in. I would have liked to see the belly dancers and talk to the family world travelers. The wrought iron stuff looks cool.

  3. I love doing ‘kids’ crafts! Looks like loads of fun. Also curious to see your mosaic. Shantytown looks very Old West type; love it!

  4. Oh you would have LOVED it!!! You would have gone away with so many creative ideas – there were even some quilts too.

    (Note to self …… must remember photo of mosaic…..)

  5. I did mean to go back and talk to the world travelling family some more, but I got so busy doing other stuff that I completely forgot!!! I were amazed that they were in our little town as we’d seen them on the TV a few weeks before.

  6. Hehehe – I would have had a go at ALLL the ‘kids crafts’ if i’d had more time. There was a felting activity that looked fun too.
