Art on the Avenue!
The neighborhood is gearing up for Art on the Avenue. Come Oct. 3th. vans, cars, SUV and minivans will desend on the avenue. They'll look for their space numbers and Begin to unload for the fair. The traffic is light, and the sun barely up. Soon the police will block off the street. St. Elmo's and The CabooseCafe' will be staving offhunger with fresh coffee and muffins. At 9:00 the first cars will start competing for parking spaces. Those of us who live here and don't have driveways will make it a point not to leave, least we lose our parking spots. I live one block over from Mount Vernon Avenue "the Avenue". This makes for easy looking and buying. With some luck I will get my Mother - in - Law to let me take her out in her wheelchair. She's 91 and can't walk far distances.
You have to come and see all the vender's. Photographers and jewelry side by side withhoney farmers and hand stitched bags. There will be potters and painters. The food vendors the snow cone makers all set up for the masses. The Bombay Curry Co. is my favorite. It's not all art and crafts. Music can be heard all day. I'll be busy at my daughter's dance studio The Ballet Studio. They go on at 1:00. Miss Mary has re-staged dances to fit a smaller stage. You will be impressed with these kids. Tap, Jazz and Ballet;please take note of the tall blond teenager. That's my girl AnnaMarie.
You truly have to come. The face painting, scarecrow making, and arts and crafts will your little ones busy. And don't forget the stores and shops. Bring your dog. You'll see many the cities canines.
If you see a long haired chihuahua on a bright red leash that's Sweet William, try not to step on him.
