ARTS ALIVE 2017 RECAP
Thank you to all who came out to enjoy a full day of arts performances, exhibits, food, and fun! An estimated 2500 people attended Arts Alive! 2017.
Here’s what people had to say about the event:
I brought my daughter and 3 of her friends on Sunday and they were still talking about it the next day: “Yesterday was really fun!’ one of them said to me as she bounced off the school bus. All 4 girls are between 10-11 years old and they really got a lot out of the activities and performances.

I have attended Arts Alive for many years and found this one to be the best yet. It was ran organized, ran smoothly, and had a good variety of groups, entertainment, and vendors.
