June’s art fests will get your summer rolling
Spring has been a display of Mother Nature toying with our emotions. Summer is around the corner (think positive), so June is a great time to welcome some excellent art festivals. Think live painting, music, vendors, food, and more. My favorite part is watching the artists in action. What do you love most?
Get your calendar ready for a fun-filled month!
