Thousands of people gathered in downtown Gainesville last weekend to partake in the 36th Annual Downtown Festival & Art Show.
The festival featured unique work from artists who came from around the nation to display their material. Painters, ceramicists, sculptors and an abundance of other creative artists were present for the show.
A variety of food vendors filled the streets. Nonprofit organizations also spread awareness about their charities. The festival included activities for children such as live shows and painting.
I sort of think the fact that we worship at the alter of youth as a culture is wrong and kind of sort of denies us some of the pleasures and good qualities about growing older and I try to celebrate them. So that’s really my message. It’s sort of just, not to listen to the people who tell you to act your age because what does that actually mean?
