Everyone has heard the phrase, “Paris is always a good idea.” I also like to say, “Art is always a good idea.” This Saturday, despite the recent tensions in our city, we decided to head towards uptown CLT to Freedom Park for the Festival in the Park.
While we were there mostly to see the art, there were booths for everything from jewelry, soap and candles, and even one with the most beautiful bonsai trees.
We decided to get there early in the morning, as the day was promising to be quite a toasty one. (No one told the Carolina’s that it’s Fall now!) While there many locals out enjoying the day, we were grateful for the moments of shade and the fact that an air conditioned shuttle would bring us back to our car.
Although there were designated areas for the food trucks, we found a few sprinkled in amongst the different booths.
