Arts Hullabaloo is a free public event focused on children of all ages to increase wonder, understanding and appreciation of the art. This weekend showcases visual arts, performing arts, musical arts, culinary arts, fiber arts and literary arts to name a few. Artists paint in public; there’s food art, fiber arts, music and other artistic presentations. Bring the kids for face-painting, chalk art, tie-dying and kid-sized art tables.
