Better late than never…yeah with this post too.
Arrived at the ArtHop birthday bash not long before it was over…err uh…snagged by the fact Library Park which I know as Marketfest is not near a library but there are several parks that are in Redding. Been here long enough you would think I knew…and yes I checked first ha ha so needless to say we were late but it was still a lot of fun. Was able to catch up with Kelly, Phil, Steve and Donni along with three sets by the Mt. Shasta Taiko Drummers shown below.
After the bash we headed out to Carnegie’s where we down a few Tangerine Wheats and ran into several friends. The Mt. Shasta Taiko Drummers arrived for dinner so we got to compliment them on their great performance in person. Later we strolled on over to the Cascade where we witnessed a little flower power art or whatever you want to call it….as this gal had her self rolled with various hues of paint before smudging herself onto canvas laid out on the sidewalk. The musical group beside their setup was providing the best entertainment…have no clue to who they were but they were great.
We then headed into Vintage bar and grill where we managed to catch a table on the sidewalk….nice evening to be sitting outside…wow we did not have the triple digit heat we are known for this time of year. While at the bar buying a round of drinks…I spotted Jim Dyar with friends…sorry Jim but I did not want to interrupt click!
After awhile at Vintage we made our way over to Vintner’s Cellar where we wrapped up the evening. So much we didn’t get to see as the ArtHop has grown far beyond the immediate downtown area.
