Asheville, Art in the Park

We met a lot of local artists and tourists visiting the downtown area. It was nice to drive, arrive at our location, and set up in less than an hour. The artists that participated in the event were talented in many areas of craft and fine art.

Here are a few links to the people that showcased their work there:

Shady Valley Cranberry Festival, Shady Valley, TN - October 9th 2010

We had a wonderful time at the 2010 Shady Valley Cranberry Festival. This event was only my second craft festival I've attended. We had to leave Asheville around 6 am for the two hour drive to Shady Valley. I was amazed at how beautiful the drive was. We left before sunrise and arrived shortly after. As we got closer, mist covered the ground and filled the valleys. The morning was slightly chilly and a bit damp, but as the day progressed it warmed up to about 80 degrees and remained that way throughout the day. We met some very nice people, ate some good food, and were entertained by local musicians until the close of the day. I hope to return next year.
