Alexandria’s annual Arts Festival takes place the second weekend of September. Several blocks of King Street are temporarily turned into a pedestrian mall for the event. Passante of Picturing Washington and I strolled the art-filled street yesterday.
This year’s Arts Festival weather was perfect, not like the sweltering heat of last year. Even if you don’t buy anything, people watching is great and the art is always interesting. This year some of it was hilarious and some disturbing. It’s always so much more interesting when art brings out feelings in me other than simply “I like that” or “I don’t like that.”
