East Texas Art Fest '09 A look at the first day and a look ahead

07/24/09 08:26:21 AM Marshall, Texas.
The first day of the art fest was July 23. It was an interesting bunch of people and everyone seemed to be having fun. I was having fun himself, so my views might be a bit biased. Although I had to leave early (I know, boo!), I am sure the people there were having fun and a small but steady stream of people was coming in. I will leave you with a picture of the set for now. I will try to get some You Tube video embeds soon.
Just a reminder, the Art Fest will continue today (July 24, 2009) at Washington Square, NOT at the old SWEPCO warehouse (that was for July 23). If you can stay until 11 PM, you just might get to see Grant Massey. If you are in town, just stop by at the Washington Square where they have bands lining up from six in the evening, poetry readings (at Prospero's) from seven in the evening, and the downtown shops (presumably all day). Here is the schedule as far as I know:
