I didn't take many photos of this day of activities but I have a few to show the scale of the shows. The horse sculpture was massive. It was made from scrap metals of all kinds. I really don't know how it would be moved to be put in a truck to be taken home with out a lot of people power or a lift.
The downtown festival was filled with artist's booths from all over the United States. Only ten percent or less are from Iowa in the show. The protest festival of artist from mostly Iowa is held at the State Fair grounds, inside an air conditioned building. The other art show was created the second year after the first show started out. Both are good shows and fun to see the work from all over the state and the US.
This is a second shot showing the crowds at the downtown event. It was crowded and people went in all directions. If you walked slowly the general crowd mulled around in either direction or sometimes just crossed right in front of you.
I did get some more outside work done Saturday afternoon. It is crazy how it has all got bogged down but I am slowly turning things around. I need to find my shears and start trimming the volunteer trees that are growing in all the flower gardens. Asiatic lilies and stargazers are about to open up.
Thanks for stopping by today.
