Old Towne Art Fair

Earlier today, I spent some time at The Old Towne Art Fair. It’s the oldest outdoor juried art fair in the country with “more than 250 invited artists displaying their paintings, sculptures, photographs, ceramics, jewelry and more.” I can’t say I really looked at the art, as I was more chatting it up with friends and people watching. Then we stopped by my coworkers party for drinks before heading to Las Piñatas for dinner. The plan was then to head to the St. Micheal’s Celebration but as we were all under-dressed for this cold weather, the group split up and most headed home. Speaking of cold, what is up with the weather here in Chicago? We have yet to have a day over 80 degrees. This is really starting to get depressing. Plus it must be hurting sales at all these summer festivals. Lots of people were out and about today, but it wasn’t as crowded as it normally is. Thinking the weather had something to do with that.

  1. I think Chicagoans get tricked by the days of steady sunshine, but ya gotta remember, it ain’t summer yet. We’ll be longing for these days when the mercury tops 100 and they start filling the truck trailers with bodies again.

  2. Yes, but it’s June. Btw, I’d take 100 degree weather than be cold.
