As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I went to the Sarasota Chalk Festival. It was my first time visiting this festival. It used to be held in downtown Sarasota but had outgrown the area and is now held in Venice. Part of the exhibit is at the airport and part is in downtown Venice on Miami Avenue. Yesterday, I shared some of my photos from the airport. Today, I’m sharing my favorites from downtown Miami Avenue.
The theme this year was “Eat, Drink and Be Merry”. So it was perfect that Shaggy Rogers and Scooby Doo were eating cake.
And of course you need the drinks from Cheers…
Children were portrayed in such creative and interesting ways.
Women were celebrated…
And of course men … with a special appearance by James Bond with the newest movie in the franchise “Spectre” released a couple of weeks ago.
Food was celebrated. It is “Eat, drink and be merry”, right?
I love this girl holding the “Joy of Cooking” cookbook.
They had the fantastical ~ combining two concepts into one.
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, one artist drew a woman sitting enjoying watermelon with a turkey nearby celebrating our wonderfully warm weather pretty much year ’round.
I took a photo of just the turkey too which I probably will use for all things Thanksgiving.
Well, there you have it. Although I took more photos (there were tons of artist drawings) this post is getting kind of long so I will stop here. I hope you enjoyed my photos. If you haven’t checked out the first part of my photos taken at the airport, you can do that here.
I can’t wait until next year’s festival.
Have you been to the chalk festival before? What did you think?
