Magical Montgomery

But wait, I’m not done yet! After catching the train home from the National Book Festival and Garden, on arriving back in Silver Spring I had to check out the Magical Montgomery art festival.

With over a 100 booths featuring local and regional artists, photographers, crafts and organizations representing local theater, film, dance and community interests, I was surprised at how much there was to take in.

Two stages of music and other performances offered entertainment to the large crowd (I showed up just in time for the Ziva Spanish Dance Ensemble, olé!). There was plenty of street food to choose from, and kids had their pick of activities—face painting, belly dancing lessons, you name it.

The wackiest thing I saw was this guy’s (he might as well have been straight out of a Grateful Dead concert) display of “artcars,” the most elaborate was a truck and it almost induced a flashback. I didn’t catch many details or get any good pics because kids had the thing surrounded.

Phew! What a day. Peace…
