I spent last Saturday at Harmony Park in Oakhurst for the 11th annual Oakhurst Arts & Music Festival and it was a wondrful day! The weather was great and the people, as always, were friendly. The day started with the Arts 5k Run, organized by Charles Cope at One Step At a Time.
Here are some of my photos from the parade:
Line Dancers from the Decatur Rec Center
The Youth Group from Thankful Baptist Church
The Asian Cajuns in the Zip Car with  Carl Black
The “BobMobile”
Lyn Menne with Senior Olympians
Jody Foster of Navo did dance demonstrations
Jody Foster of Navo Church did dance demonstrations in the Children’s Area and the Boys & Girls Club had a pumpkin painting booth.
I will have some more photos tomorrow of the great bands that donated their time and talents to this great community festival. Have a great week!

We are busy getting ready for the Oakhurst Arts & Music Festival tomorrow and thought you might like to see some of the preparations. We were over there this morning marking off the artist spaces and caught some of our contractors in action. Classic Tents and Events is one of our “friends” who we rent staging, tables and chairs from. Ed is our self-titled “Favorite Tent Guy” –  we love working with him and he is indeed our favorite. Here are some of the workers putting up the music stage.

PitStop supplies our portolets and we love working with them as well. Portolets may not bring up the best images in people’s minds, but PitStop does a great job with customer service as well as delivering clean unists. The owners, Terri and Jeff Wigley, are former IBM employees and have applied what they learned at IBM to running a very professional company. I caught one of their employees checking the units after he delivered them. Now you have a little peek into behind the scenes at one of our events! See you tomorrow at Harmony Park.

I am looking forward to attending the Oakhurst Arts & Music Festival this weekend, held in Harmony Park. I really enjoy the community feel of this festival, as well as the opportunity to buy art and especially jewelry from some local artists. Ann Finley is one of my favorite jewelry artists and she will be there with her new creations in enamel. Erin Smith is another local favorite. Erin is the wife of Fred Smith, owner of Mojo Pizza in Oakhurst. Speaking of food, I also enjoy sitting outside one of the many restuarants around Harmony Park and having a “yummy” lunch or dinner.

The festival begins at 10am and lasts until 7pm. If you are an early bird, be sure to come at 8am for the Oakhurst 5K Arts Run which begins in front of One Step At A Time. Musical entertainment is ongoing and wraps up with a concert by Heaven Davis Band from 5 until 7pm. Free children’s activities begin at 10am and the parade is at 2pm.

I hope you can join me and the community at this great fall family event. See you at Harmony Park!
