mark your calendars. We went to a Festival last weekend.
And we liked it.
we drove to Laguna Beach and took part in the 38th annual
Sawdust Art Festival. As advertised, it appeared to be another
one of those outdoor arts and crafts shows, with hundreds
of artists selling their goods, along with live entertainment
and food stands.
Sawdust Festival has developed a good reputation over the
years, but still, we were hesitant. After our less-than-enjoyable
experiences with the Calabasas Pumpkin Festival, The
Festival of Books, and the Oxnard
Strawberry Festival, we had been pushed over the edge
by festivals. Crowded, expensive and common, festivals didn't
seem to have much that grabbed our interest.
so at the Sawdust Festival, a setting that not only features
lots of art from local residents, but a laid-back quality
that we found very appealing.
