There are several wonderful art festivals during the summer in Rochester. One of our favorites is the Corn Hill Arts Festival. Each year the organizers ask an artist to create a design that is used for posters and tee shirts.
The festival takes place in an historic, residential area about 2-3 miles from our house.
It runs for two days, and luckily we chose Saturday. The weather was perfect, and because we were there early, it wasn't overly crowded. According to the Sunday paper, over 90,000 people visited on Saturday. Sunday morning was overcast and rainy.
You can find just about any kind of art work.
This booth was a new one. Although the little girl in the center doesn't look particularly happy, I'll bet this was a "must-see" if you had a young girl with you.
The last few years, we've walked the entire festival (several hundred booths) and bought very little. This year we purchased several things. I loved the botantical illustrations in this booth, and bought two packs of note cards.
Our big purchase, however, was a fountain for our shade garden just off our patio. We've been looking at these for several years, and finally "bit the bullet." Hopefully, Tracy will get ours installed this week, and I'll post a photograph of ours. They come in two sizes. We bought the smaller one on the right.
Sometimes we've walked from home, but the last two years we've parked on the far side of the river, and walked across the Ford Street Bridge to the festival.
We had our RunKeeper app on, and by the time we got back to the car, we'd walked three miles. I was glad I didn't have another mile and half to go to get home!
