art in the park
Art in the Park... if you haven't been you must check out this once-a-month event that takes place at Dinosaur Caves Park in Shell Beach. The setting alone is beautiful right along the path where the ocean meets the cliffs. Art in the Park is held on the first Sunday of every month (except in July, Art in the Park will be on Saturday) from May through November. It is a great day to take the entire family out; there is a small park at the Dinosaur Caves Park where children can play on top of "Oreo" the Orca Whale or hide inside the big blue dinosaur eggs. At the Dinosaur Caves Park you will even find a dog fountain for your thirsty little furry friend. There are over 100 local artists and craftsmen that come out to Art in the Park to sell and display their work. The art includes paintings, sculpture, pottery, glass, textiles, jewelry, wood and metal furniture, and more. The event is open to the public and free of charge. While at Art in the Park you can also enjoy live music, hands-on children's activities, fresh flowers and plants, a BBQ, and on-site massage. It is fun for everyone and I am sure will find something you cannot live without!
