Heritage Festival 2006

Saturday, October 7th was a lovely fall day for an arts festival with musical performances, art activities, art demonstrations, and free pizza. Several hundred kids & adults enjoyed the day on the LRMA lawn.

The Cowboy Blues Band provided entertainment:














... a mustachioed blues"man" in training took the stage for "Ride, Sally, Ride":



















Artist Charles Crossley helped young artists do their own collages & paintings:



































Local woodcarving artist Ben Morgan demonstrated woodturning on his lathe:





And, apparently, kids and their parents weren't the only ones enjoying the fine weather and entertainment:



Who knew doggies dug the blues?
