It was a lot more fun and a lot less scary than I anticipated. I enjoyed capturing local artist like Okemos High School student Taylor Taylor perform.
A celebration is never complete without kettle corn…at least in my opinion. The gentlemen running the kettle corn booth showed me how to make my favorite treat and gave me a freshly popped bag to remember my experience.
I also stumbled upon a jewelry booth. This artist hand crafted each one of her pieces. Her color combinations and attention to detail were remarkable and if I wasn’t so busy filming the event I would have come home with a lot less money than I brought.
I had a blast getting to interview and meet people and admire the talents of local artists of all kinds. I am hoping I didn’t have “beginners luck” with this assignment, because I am more excited than ever to cover more stories!
