The third Mile of Music festival, aka Mile 3, was the happening thing around here over the weekend, with around 700 performances by 200+ original musical acts from Thursday to Sunday.
I attended the performance of Son Little on Thursday evening, already very familiar with his music thanks to Kate... I've been listening for quite a while now! You may have read/heard about his music in The New Yorker or on NPR. It was a great show and I'm so glad I went! (And wore my new dress).
Saturday morning was a farmer market morning, as usual, and the highlight of every market morning is a visit from Junah! Not only did he dump out all three snack containers, he took great pleasure in walking over it... the sound and sensation!
Later on Saturday, we made our way down to The Alley Project (that link will take you to Kate's YoungSpace blog with lots of behind-the-scenes/before-after photos, etc.). We participated in a Drawing Rally -- I volunteered and Rusty made art!
Artists made as many pieces as they wanted in their time period to help raise funds for community arts initiatives.
Some very talented artists participated:
And some enthusiastic community members also took part!
It was a blast and the place was hoppin'!
