June 18th was a great day, and not just because the sun managed to keep the rain at bay. The Sons of Fenrir set up their market in Historic Markerville, shared stories, joined spectators in games and of course shared battle re-enactments from the Viking Age.
It was threatening rain, but many of the artists stayed for day two of our Outdoor Art Show and Sale. It turned out great (rain held off till 5 p.m.), and people kept showing up right to closing. Larry and Russ returned to sing and play guitars, helping to make the day enjoyable both sight and sound.
Thank you to all the artisans who could attend and make Artists on the Avenue possible. And a big thanks to everyone who ventured out to see the show; it was a success, and we’re all looking forward to next year.
Here are some photos from our second day:Continue reading Photos from July 4, 2021
