The Stockley Gardens Arts Festival in Nofolk VA
The Stockley Gardens Arts Festival in Norfolk Virginia was this past weekend. I made it early, so the crowds weren't there, and artists were still setting up. I have been to this festival many times, and I am happy to report that this year there were artists that I had not seen before. Maybe, because this time I went planning to write a blog I noticed more things than in other years. They had a schedule full of Entertainment with all kinds of music ... Acoustic, Jazz, , Alternative Rock, Country, Blues, Swing and Rock.
They had a stage for kids activities that included Magic show, Bobby the Clown, ( I am afraid of clowns) Balloon animals, Salsa performance, violin concert, Hands on art and Environmental Puppet Show.
I did not have time to visit their thrift store, but in previous years along with buying art, I have bought some cool nick-knacks there.
