Well you know how things get put on your back burner and you totally forget about it for three years - or maybe that is just me. Anyhow this year I am finally going to make it to Art in the Park in Columbia, Missouri.
I am tad bit excited - I am totally stoked - for more than one reason! I love art, I am no artist, but I love going to these kinds festivals as they fill me with ideas and broaden my perspective of life.
Art in the Park is an annual event (56 years and counting) in Columbia Missouri, it is held the first weekend in June. At the festival you will find anything from paintings to coffee mugs, and everything in between. Gives me a chance to catch up on my gift buying!
The festival is a family friendly event - kids will have the opportunity to design their own tye-dye t-shirt, face painting, and there be a magician there.
The festival is FREE - yes you read that right it is free and there is a free shuttle bus to the Stephens Lake Park.
