This was the 29th year for the event, held for the second year at Mike Weir Park (and the second year organized by the Rotary Club of Sarnia Bluewaterland) and clearly shows no sign of breaking the tradition.
There were approximately 100 exhibitors displaying a wide range of artistic talents from beautifully stitched clothing to breathtaking paintings. In short, Art in the Park had it all.
The most popular type of booth, however, was jewelry. With at least 30 different vendors, it was clear that accessories were the speciality of our local artists.
Everyone was in high spirits, especially the artists who were cheerful and helpful, jumping at the chance to discuss their work.
Some have made it their own tradition to visit this massive display of local talent. Mary Barlow,17, is one of them,
"I try to come with my family every year because all the art and jewelry is really unique. You won't find the same thing at any of the booths."
