A week before, a giant oak fell on John Howell Park. The week after, our first broiling heat wave of the summer arrived. And in between those two unpleasant events, we had one of our most enjoyable Summerfests ever.
As has come to be expected from Summerfest, this year’s artist market was an impressive array of some of the most outstanding art in the southeast; our music stages were busy with talented, entertaining performers; and our generous sponsors helped us deliver a festival that, by all accounts, was enjoyed and appreciated by all.
Kicking it all off was the neighborhood parade. Lots of fun for adults and kids, who showed plenty of creativity and flair! Thanks to Kris Smith for organizing this.
Next came the Community Dinner and Outdoor Movie. Thanks to Bill Chan for the great video of this he took from his drone.
Following these events were the 5K road race, the Tot Trot, the opening of the Artist Market, Kidsfest, lots of music in two locations, food, and the Warren Bruno Celebration Bike Ride… something for everyone. Here are lots of photos for you to enjoy.
Special thanks to our army of community volunteers who made this all possible. More about them, and about how much we brought in, in an upcoming edition of The Voice.
