Bel Air Festival of the Arts

Last Sunday we participated in Bel Air Festival of the Arts held the 3rd Sunday in September in beautiful downtown Bel Air, Maryland. There is all day entertainment, including numerous events staged on the bandstand, arts and crafts and children activities.

Here are a few pictures that I took of my girlfriends from New Jersey...

Donna paints french country or shabby chic on tin, mirrors, glass, wood. She was busy working changing the colors on a design as a customer waits. Donna was unaware that I was taking her picture! Love candid photos!

In this picture she was telling me not to take her picture! LOL! Too late!

This is Janice...she was just sitting back and relaxing. These gals deserved it as this was their 3rd show in as many days. I did this weekend a few years ago and I can tell you by Sunday, you are wiped out!

Of course my craft shows are a family affair. Ian is in charge of running the cash register and generally helping customers. He's been going to craft shows since he was 6 days old. Of course we were just visiting at that one, but he was at his first official craft show when he was a month old. He's a big help with set up and break down too.

As you can see I still need to do some work with learning how to take pictures with my new camera...maybe someday soon I'll get it! Sigh!

Anyway, if you are in Maryland on the 3rd Sunday of September, Bel Air Festival of the Arts, is certainly worth the trip.
