TIME FOR GOOD NEWS IT IS TOO HOT FOR GRUMPY AND DOUR

Help Support Local Artists! by Liz Tobias

On Saturday, August 2nd from 1 – 8 pm, Arts Colllinwood presents their 6th annual Waterloo Arts Festival. Located in Cleveland on Waterloo Road, the family friendly fest will have something for everyone!

The festival includes local art venders, Waterloo’s 3 art galleries, area shops and organizations. Activities for kids and grown-ups allow you to create your own art. There will be live music, street performers, skateboard demos, and a Rock-and-Roll Flea Market at the Beachland Ballroom. Stop by for some food and stay late for the after parties.

If you happen to visit the Waterloo Arts Festival, keep an eye out for one of Lorain’s artists. I’ve been asked to have my own booth! I will be selling a mish-mosh of arts and crafts, including paintings and amigurumi (crocheted stuffed animals).

Stop by this Saturday from 1-8.
The festival will be between East 156th and East 161st on Waterloo Rd.
To get to the festival, take I 90. Use the 152 St. exit if you’re coming from the west. Use the 156 St. exit if you’re coming from the east.

She plans to sign up with a softball team for fall ball and to also play basketball, and she’ll be a sixth grader at Irving Elementary School this fall.

    ….I attended last years Waterloo Arts Festival and had a great time, although the draw was Scott and Michelle’s band. Still, lots of fun and a great place to meet face to face with a lot of our local bloggers. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend this year’s festival, but maybe Liz can give us an idea of what it’s like at this years event.

    The Waterloo Arts Festival was different from Bloggapalooza. In fact, Bloggapalooza coincided with the W.A.F. in order to raise money for it. Unfortunately, there is no Blogga this year, as there was not much interest.
