“Last year we went to the LeMoyne Arts Festival for the first time, and I have I say, it was our favorite festival all year. There were probably a dozen separate booths with activities and crafts for my kids to try, including pipe cleaner sculpture, several types of painting, clay, fashion photography, and more! I think their favorite was getting to try their hand at the pottery wheel. We got to see all the amazing chalk art (and contribute to it) on the roadway, and blow bubbles with wands and giant loops on the hill. We hadn’t allowed enough time in the day and had to leave before even scratching the surface. This year we are making a day of it and hope it’ll be an annual tradition my kids look forward to for years to come!
