9th Annual Art in Avondale Park Scheduled May 5
The 9th annual Art in Avondale Park, along with a community arts festival, will be held Saturday, May 5, from 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. in the newly-restored and refurbished historic Avondale Park. The mission of Art in Avondale Park Alliance, Inc. is to inspire children to discover their talents through a wide variety of art lessons provided by local art teachers, artists, and community volunteers. Art from local and regional artists will be on exhibit and for sale. The event will also feature an area which will showcase art from students of area schools. Local musicians, singers, and dancers will perform on the Avondale Park Amphitheatre stage. A hands-on art area, clowns, magicians, pony rides, popcorn, and cotton candy will also be a part of the festivities. In case of rain, the festival will be held Sunday, May 6.
The event is free and food and drinks will be available for purchase. The park is located at the intersection of 41st Street, South and 5th Avenue South, beside the Avondale Regional Library. After you've enjoyed the art show and explored the renovated park, be sure to visit the Avondale Library to cool off and check out some books and movies to keep you entertained for the rest of the weekend.
