MIDSUMMER ARTS FAIRE 2016
I start looking forward to this as soon as May flips over to June. If you ask me, it's the best annual event in Quincy. Depending on the day you go, there's always something wonderful happening. On Friday night, the park is alive with the blue's from Blue's in the District. You'll have to find your way through a sea of families and friends enjoying the food, music, and some BYOB.
If you have a child, or know one, you must bring them Saturday morning so they can become little artists! There is a tent dedicated to hands-on activities for children, and a children's art gallery where they can buy inexpensive art. While the children make masterpieces, you'll enjoy some excellent listening music from various local artists. You might even find yourself in a drum circle, or cooling off in the splash pad.
Of course, don't leave until you've strolled through the art booths and made your wish list. Our dreams came true when we got to take home some of that beautiful blue pottery you'll see later... After you've shopped your heart out, head on over to the food court where you can indulge in some kettle corn or spoon wave and stay hydrated with a lemon shakeup. And if all this isn't enough convincing, come for the love of community. Come for the impromptu entertainment on a park bench, for running into an old friend who always feels like a fresh friend, for the fluffy dogs, and for the smiles. See you next year!
