With spectacular weather — and a wise move from Parker Harding Plaza, back to its original Main Street roots — this weekend’s 44th annual Fine Arts Festival drew twice last year’s numbers.
An eclectic mix of 148 artists, sculptors, photographers and jewelry makers — and the addition of new dining options — drew raves from longtime festival-goers and newcomers alike. The event is sponsored by the Westport Downtown Merchants Association.
A few steps from the art show, the Westport Library sponsored its annual ginormous Book Sale.
In a world filled with Kindles and iPhones, it’s nice to know thousands of people still love to read books.
And listen to CDs and vinyl, which were also on sale.
Like those tens of thousands of books — all could be had for a song.
The art show and book sale were only 2 of many events in Westport this weekend.
And there’s much more to come. Happy summer!
