Went to the Henderson Art Festival in Las Vegas this past weekend. They closed down the street in downtown Henderson. It was a HOT 92 degrees outside...but a very nice day.
The vendors were pretty much like our crafter's here selling their wares. Paul and I had a good time...we had handcrafted root beer which was cool and refreshing! We bought a gecko to hang on our wall (any of you that know me know how I cannot stand gecko's -- so go figure)!
They had a section of the festival that was geared toward the keiki. There was a booth that made recycled art, face painting, there were a number of students that had selected a piece of art that they had to duplicate in chalk on the sidewalk. Quite a number of them were so talented, including this young artist that we were quite impressed with. Wish we would have withstood the heat to watch him complete his piece because I'm sure it was stunning!
Just walking around for the hour and a half, in the bright sunshine gave me a sunburn...those poor vendors had to withstand 6 hours of the festival PLUS set-up and take-down time. But they all had smiles on their faces...despite the heat! We can certainly relate to that huh?
They made some great wire sculptures!
All in all, it was a lot of hot sun and a lot of cool crafts...get it? Cool crafts..haha!
