Park City Art Festival

Each August, Park City has a large Art Festival and about 40,000 people role into town to see it. I think it is only second to Sundance as Park City's biggest event. I read that it has now become one of the top 10 art fairs in the U.S..

The only way to really see the size is to take a picture from upstairs on the deck of one of the restaurants. I tried at one, but they were closed, just prepping for the dinner crowd. They kicked me out. Here you can see roughly one side of a third of the distance of one direction.

Julie and I spent some time Friday evening and then a return visit on Sunday. We were all prepared with measurements for areas in our house that need art. No such luck. Our only purchases were a few gifts. We did much better last year.

The shoppers were busy shopping. The artists tried to stay alert on their feet for yet one more day. This kid had it figured out though. He just curled up in a chair and slept as thousands of people walked by.

Hopefully next year will be more productive.
