Everyone enjoyed the Art A'Faire today at Visalia United Methodist Church, including eleven month old Adin, who was entertained by watching the audience watch the stage. There was art, music, dance, demonstrations, food, and a wonderful turnout despite the first rain of the season.
Glenda, of A Stitch in Pine, displayed some of her intricately woven pine needle baskets. Melissa, of Honeybee Pottery, showed her stoneware pottery and we had a good discussion about upcoming local pottery events.
The faire was highlighted with wonderful art and entertainment throughout the day. Every half hour we were delighted with dance, song, mime and skits from some very talented folks of the area.
From the very young pre-second graders Kid's Edition, who performed a "Disney Spectacular" to young adults of the Sierra Performing Arts who delighted us with "A Halloween Celebration" of dance, song and creative costumes, we were thoroughly entertained.
We came home tired and were greeted with a beautiful yet ominous cloud display in our front yard. Good night till next time.
