Market in the Park This Weekend (UPDATED with pics!)

UPDATE: Couldn’t make it to the park, or just want to take a trip down memory lane?  Look no further!  We present to you, the 2010 Market in the Park photo gallery.

It won’t be long now before the Big Tent goes up on Main Street and the funnel cakes get dusted with powdered sugar.  In the meantime, how about whetting your Sorghum Festival appetite with another event showcasing the artistic and creative spirit of Morgan Countians?

The 2nd annual Market in the Park will be held this Saturday, August 21, from 9am to 3pm at Old Mill Park.  The event started last year and drew a good crowd.  This year looks to expand on that initial success.  So far, there are over 40 confirmed vendors, with items ranging from woodworking, to dolls, to candy and a book for children.

In addition to the variety of great arts and crafts items, there will be music by local musicians, as well as food and produce from local farmers.

Summer has been a scorcher so far, but at least as of right now, Saturday is looking more agreeable in the temperature department, so it should be a great day to get out and socialize, do a little early Christmas shopping, or just walk around and take pride in the creative spirit of your neighbors.  Too often we take for granted in this area just how talented a lot of the people are, and I think this event is a great way to showcase that talent and give it the recognition it deserves.

Hope to see you there!
