Art on the Avenue


Yesterday was Del Ray’s annual Art on the Avenue event. Four blocks of Mt. Vernon Avenue were blocked off from traffic for the display and sale of arts and crafts. It is Alexandria’s second biggest street art fair.

I remembered last year’s event and how lovely and warm it was. Not this year! But even though it was a little breezy, a little chilly and threatened to rain, there was a good turnout. October can be a balmy month in Alexandria, but we’re on the tail end of a storm that just passed through.

    Fairs are fun; not very original but true. Pictures of any booths??

  4. We too have markets like these, and whilst I find some of the work ‘tacky’ a lot of it is very creative and unique. There is one particular market in the city which has some great stuff for gifts!
