Art Walk Anyone?

I interrupt your day to bring you an important news bulletin.

Fresh from the inbox of my e-mail, information regarding this Saturday, February 25th, 4th Annual Art Walk (That's tomorrow folks!). Local businesses will be sharing their space to display art work and are encouraging you to pop by for a little visit and take in the art from various artists of different ages, backgrounds, and styles. Being a self directed walk, you can leisurely stroll through the various shops at your own pace. Maybe even stopping for a coffee at Flow Lifestyle Boutique, grab a quick and delicious bite to eat at Art of Eating Deli & Catering or Bella's Cafe and Bistro. Why not both?! With all this walking and art admiring, you'll need to keep yourself fueled! lol. More information on the Art Walk can be found at any of the participating locations, which I will be posting below.

The following is a copy of all the locations where you can  enjoy some fabulous works of art and check out locally owned businesses. It has been suggested that this walk take place between the hours of 10am until 2pm though it is up to you when you decided to venture out. It is also noted that not all locations may be open given it is a weekend, however the art may be in display for an extended period of time.

Special thanks to Stephanie from Flow Lifestyle Boutique and to Andrew, the Arts Culture and Heritage Coordinator at the Town Hall for relaying this information on to me. If anyone would like to add their business website, please feel free to contact me. I'm hoping this chest and head cold I have clears up in time for the stroll tomorrow. If not I'll be bundling up with a few extra layers of Vicks vapor rub, so if you don't see me, you'll definitely smell me! Haha.
