3rd Annual Downtown Artwalk

PHOTO COURTESY OF KINGSVILLE DOWNTOWN
ARTWALK AND MUSIC FESTIVAL


Today was Kingsville's 3rd Annual Artwalk and Music Festival. They block off the street and set up booths and music. The weather was gorgeous and lots of people turned out.



The Saturday Quilters displayed their beautiful quilts up and down Kleberg Avenue.

  
Booths were set up the entire section of the retail portion of the historic part of downtown. While checking them out, I ran into several people that I haven't seen in quite awhile. It was nice to catch up with them.


Nathan Nordstom, a.k.a. Sloke, of Austin was creating his graffiti art. It kind of reminded me of what I see the when I get stopped by the train. It's amazing what he can do with different cans of spray paint.


  
I left before the Kingsville Youth Ballet Folklorico came to perform. I would have like to have seen them, but I needed to get back home. Several bands will begin performing at 3:30 and then to top it off, Roger Creager start his performance at 9:35pm. The beer, wine and tequila tasting will begin at 4:30pm. Sorry to say, I'll be missing that as well. Rats!

Lovely blog, it must be so wonderful to have the opportunity to express creative urges like you do. It must be fun, you make nice stuff. I've enjoyed your blog very much, it also gave me a slice of life in Texas, which is another world away but seems very nutritious. I love it, thanks. You are welcome to visit my blog too, but its not as nice.
