Suwanee Arts in the Park

These belt buckles are so beautiful.
 
 
This past weekend our city had our annual art festival in Suwanee Towne Park. The organizers of this event are North Gwinnett Arts Association and the city of Suwanee. This is the festivals fourth year  celebrating local artist and fine crafters.

I just love her baskets.
 
 
I actually used to be a member of the arts association and helped to plan the festival.  I hope to join again real soon so I can be a part of this fun cultural event.



 
I saw several exhibiters from previous years, but there were several new faces who were exhibiting at the festival this year.
 
 


My daughter and our pet Tallu decided to take a moment for some silly pictures.
 
 
 
As you can see she was ready for the picture taking to be over with.
 
 
 
 
Our new city hall just opened up about three years ago. It is now the centerpiece of our park area.
 
 
 


Several years ago due to the redession many shops became vacant, but slowly we are seeing new stores coming in to fill these spaces. We have many boutiques, restaurants, and lofts that are just above the stores overlooking the beautiful park. We also have an amphitheater. During the summer we have many concerts, plays, a weekly farmers market and free movies for the family once a month.

I look forward to making many summer time memories with my family!

Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

I see the Clemson tiger paw on one of those shops. This area reminds me both of the Mizner Center in downtown BocaRaton, FL and also Toronto's Nathan Phillips Square where the city hall is, iceskating in winter and many, many more exciting community events.
