LOVING MY CITY: Thank you Decatur Arts Festival 2014 for such a walkable beautiful place to live!

SATURDAY MORNING AT THE DECATUR ARTS FESTIVAL 2014. My Chiboogamoo and I live in a pedestrian friendly city and during the Memorial Day weekend every year, city inhabitants walk or ride bikes to the arts festival. For us, it is a 15-minute walk to this scene downtown. (photo by Hallelujah Truth)
Hallelujah for a warm embracing city that loves the expressive arts! Hallelujah for the Decatur Arts Festival 2014 and all its bounty! Hallelujah for being able to walk to and around my city.
SATURDAY FARMER'S MARKET. On our way to the Decatur Arts Festival, we passed by the weekly Farmer's Market held next to Decatur High School. How exciting that it is once again peach season! (photo by Hallelujah Truth)
BIKE VALET! Every seen one of these signs? It was a first for me too! I wonder how much it cost to use a bike valet! (photo by Hallelujah Truth)
COOLING OFF. Thank you Decatur fire department for cooling off festival goers during the hot Saturday afternoon. Children and adults alike were running under the cool sprays of water right next to the food trucks! (photo by Hallelujah Truth)
ART BOOTHS. There seem to be fewer artists booths this year but those that were present were colorful! (photo by Hallelujah Truth)

PORTABLE TOILETS. A nice surprise awaited us in front of the Decatur Courthouse and under the magnolias near the acoustic tent--artistically painted portable toilets! Mona Lisa does not seem amused. (photo by Hallelujah Truth)
ALONG CLAIRMONT. Events were going on everywhere. Here you can see enthusiastic parents photographing their tutu-ed daughters inside, right off the street where the artist booths were. (photo by Hallelujah Truth)
WOW! Loved this artists' work but have lost her business card! (photo by Hallelujah Truth)
PERFORMING ARTISTS IN THE GAZEBO. Beyond the people and the tents, is the Gazebo, where there were live performances most of the day! (photo by Hallelujah Truth)
THE DECATUR ARTS ASSOCIATION. Finally! My Chiboogamoo and I had been intending for a long time to become members of the Decatur Arts Association and this past Saturday, we paid our membership dues. We are official members now. And we have the t-shirt to prove it. I'm pictured here with Ann Vann Slyke. (photo by Chiboogamoo)
