I’m on a Quasquicentennial planning committee for my community. This summer a few of us have decided to go to as many festivals and celebrations as we can, looking for food venders and entertainment. Last weekend we made it to the Omaha Summer Arts Festival with some friends.
I saw this location a few weeks ago while I was at Taste of Omaha and knew I wanted to get a portrait of the kids here and it turned out just like I imagined it would.
When we got to the Art Festival it looked like it might rain at any minute, but the weather held together and we had a great day. We always enjoy spending time in the Old Market area. There were a lot of unique art venders, one person had even created a transformer out of scrap metal.
There was a Percussion Band that was fun to listen to, street entertainers, food vendors, and a lot of kids activities. We were with friends, who have a toddler, so all of our teenagers got to “help” him in the kids zone. There was vehicle covered in chalk board paint, so you could draw on it that was pretty cool.
We also went to the Santa Lucia Festival, that was just down the path. There were a lot of things to do and the food was great! All of the activities made for a great day out. Not to mention I got to pick up a new camera lens while I was in the city, yay!
