Hopefully, you made it to one of the amazing four days of Main Street Arts Festival this year! The weather couldn't have been more cooperative, and as usual, the artists' tents were filled with interesting, beautiful and unique works of art! Downtown Fort Worth is home of this annual mile-long event that is highly regarded as one of the nation's premiere fine art and fine craft fairs.
I was fortunate enough to enjoy the festival three days and still couldn't get enough of the incredible range of artwork, rockin' live music and fantastic food. I was so amazed at what a great family atmosphere Main St. created with Main ST. Creates!, an area dedicated to interactive activities for children of all ages ranging from face painting, sand art, sculptures and a rock wall.
One of the coolest parts of the festival was the massive floating sculptures created by local college students. The 2nd Annual 'Where Art Meets the River' contest was hosted by Trinity River Vision Authority where local students created the sculptures from 1,500 pounds of Styrofoam. The winning float, a giant yellow duck in a cowboy hat floating on an inner tube, was eight feet high and 11 feet long.
You don't want to miss next year's Main Street Arts Festival in the "City of Cowboys and Culture"! Make sure to check back for next year's dates!
