Mystic Arts Festival

This August my husband and I went on our annual anniversary trip. We decided to keep things close to home and spent a week in Rhode Island and Connecticut. They are two places we've been quite a bit, but have never really taken much time to dig around too much. One of the stops we made on our trip was the Mystic Outdoor Arts Festival. It's been a long time since I've attended an event as a visitor and not a vendor,  so it was nice to be on the other side of things for a change.

The festival was spread around the downtown area, sprawling down many side roads. The river was between all the action, so we sat along it with iced coffees and muffins for breakfast. The forecast wasn't good and the sky was pretty dumpy looking, but it stayed dry and the sun had even come out by the time we were leaving. 

There was a selection of mediums there, but for some reason painters dominated the booths. I had to really dig to find the few potters that were doing the event. We saw some really nice jewelry along the way too, and had an all around nice morning and afternoon at the show.
