This Was the 18th Year of the DUMBO Arts Festival and It Was a Great Success

article 5This is another new blog just started and blogging about festival fans and the festivals that have been going on this summer.

The first article was about the DUMBO Arts Festival which is in its 18th year. This is a 3 day celebration in Brooklyn, NY and begins on Friday night with the art fans filling the streets. Saturday kicked-off a weekend that is filled with the fun of open studios, interactive arts and performing pieces. There was construction blocking off parts of the festival, but the large crowds were happy with the number of artists, the thriving and positive energy of the crowd, and also the weather was amazing.

This is another new blog interestingly done and needs site traffic to put the blog on the map so everyone knows where it is and what it is all about. This is the way great blogs start –good subject to write stories about and a great first article.

Buying site traffic does not cost much and is worth every penny that is spent. If the visitors are lovers of summer art festivals – worth every penny that you spend.

Don’t forget to come back and visit this site often if you are a lover of summer and the great festivals that are held all over the country.

The Outcome of the Recent DUMBO Arts Festival

Festival NewsFor the 18th year of the DUMBO Arts Festival, thousands of art fans filled the streets on Friday night and all day Saturday to kick-off a fun filled weekend of open studios, interactive art, and never ending performing pieces. Even though an ongoing construction project may off blocked parts of the festival, the large crowds were kept pleased by tons of artists, the positive and thriving energy of others and the amazing weather.

 For just two days of this amazing festival experience, here are some of the best highlights this year:

  • Tom Fruin brought his favorite crowd pleaser: the stained plexi-glass shack. This was said to be one of the most popular exhibits in the entire festival. This thing shows off true beauty; whether the sun is reflecting off the colors during the day or the light is illuminating from within during the night.

  • The SAWCC or South Asian Women’s Creative Collective inspired beauty amongst many women in the crowd. They asked women from all over to participate in exploring the many ways that females are judged and perceived by their physical appearance including hair, skin and clothing options.

  • Heather Hart came back with her all time Barter Town. Here you could trade for items such as third-eye face painting, massage therapy, clothing, snacks and even songs.

  • Video and light based art works lined the streets and were mostly participatory.

Sadly, the DUMBO arts festival is gone until next year. However, if you are looking for something a little family-friendly, free and completely fun based, come back next year!
