One of my artist friends from Springfield moved to Muskegon, MI to be near her children. We have kept in touch. She had mentioned a local show that she’s done in Muskegon several times and suggested I apply. Springfield, MO to Muskegon, MI is a very long drive. But, I thought…why not! I applied and got it.
The Lakeshore Art Festival is rated in the top 100 in the nation and I was flattered. I decided to leave a couple of days early so that Mindy and I could spend some time and just relax…and we did.
Lakeshore Art Festival is Huge
I knew this event was large, but 160 artists! WHOA! I was in the fine art area, which was in Hackley Park in downtown. Then they had the streets filled coming out of the park area with even more artists and vendors. My friend’s booth was just down a bit from me (and over a bit), but I got lost twice going to say hi!
Lake Michigan, Muskegon Beach
This area of the country is so beautiful and I had NO idea that Lake Michigan was so amazing.
