Peoples Choice Arts & Crafts Festival

I believe the People's Choice got started in Boalsburg (15 minutes from Bellefonte) because State College Arts Fest just got too expensive for the local people. I go to the State College Arts Fest maybe once every 3 or 4 years. The arts there is just out of my price range. This one is more affordable.

One of my favorite pasttimes is attending festivals. It seems like there's one every weekend somewhere near Dayton. This past weekend it was the "Swamp Romp" in Kettering. Cajun food and zydec music.

Kate said...

This festival looks well-attended! Our neighborhood festival which is really quite impressive begins this Friday, and I can't wait! DH avoids them like the plague, but I love them. Aren't you glad that there's variety in life??

You're right, the art at the State College arts festival is getting so expensive! I like the people's choice fesival too, much more in my price range. I like your photo of it. It looks like that grass really needs some rain!

Neva said...

This looks like a very busy place to be! Cool.

When driving back from Milroy, I noticed there was a big art festival. Regret not visiting there.

Olivier said...

pourquoi c'est une fête payante ? elle coute combien ? c'est quand même bête de faire une fete qui ne soit pas accessible par tout le monde ;o(


why is it a paying festival? it coute how much? it is nevertheless stupid to make a festival which is not accessible by everyone ;O(

Doug, I can't eat cajun food because of allergies. Wish I could.

Kate, I am glad there is variety.

Lori, yes the grass does looked bad. The weather has been strange this year.

Neva, This does bring in alot of people.

Viola, You should stop by the Peoples Choice something if you can. It's great.

Olivier, The cost I'm talking about is the prices of some of the art people sell. The People's choice is prices most people can afford. If you go to the other one, I've seen pictures priced anywhere from $500.00 to $5,000.00. Too expensive for me or maybe even the average Joe. I like to go look sometimes but don't do it too often. You have a hard time finding parking and it's better to park and ride the bus, but it's just a hassle.

Certainly looks like lots of people go to this one!! Looks like a lot of fun :o)

Felicia said...

And looks like there are lots of choices too! Did you buy anything special?

I like a festival with lots of choices. This one certainly looks like it has them.

Linda said...

Even the People's Choice is out of my price range! I did like the wooden toys though.Got a car for my son.

Fun to see another local in the blog world. I don't have time for a Photo A Day but I'm also scouting around for photo ops in Bellefonte and State College (where I live).

Felicia, Yes, on my personal blog you can see the fish wall hanging I bought for my bathroom wall. I also bought a glow in the dark pendant and a gourd bird-feeder. That was it.

Apparently... the People's Choice is white tents.

:)
Those are some really neat crafts in yesterday's post by the way.

Kuanyin said...

Looks like the ground is rather dry there too. Are you also having a drought? Craft fairs are so much fun!

Zanabel said...

Everyone looks very intense. There must be lots of interesting things to see!
