I’m pretty excited to write about another event from this weekend. Just when you think it couldn’t get better with the Christmas Village shopping opportunities, another cool event just took place in Cookeville,TN.
The 11th annual Art Prowl is all about just that: art, art, and more art. The best part? It’s for sale, instruction, and the topic of coffee conversation on the Westside. It kind of makes me fall in love with the small town life even more. There’s nothing like a good community bond to get those fuzzy, warm holiday feeling of cheer a-churning. Um, can you believe it’s mid-November?!? Yeah, me neither.
Anywho. Since many of our readers are from all over the country, I’m inviting you onto the Magic School Bus for a very special, very insta-travel, very in depth look at Cookeville and this awesome event. You know I had to take pictures for you all! Duh. So gotta teleport you all into this town somehow, right?!
Your journey starts at Sweet Sallie’s, a local café and cupcaketopia, here you’ll receive all your necessary materials to successfully prowl.
Then you’ll follow the yellow brick road. In this case, a sidewalk with pretty yellow signs.
What you’ll see along the way? Clothes, and antiques, and food galore. It’s pretty much a block party.
There’s even a car to celebrate the awesomeness. Imagine the looks from your kids if you picked them up in this puppy.
And the fun doesn’t stop when it gets dark either. Paper bags with votives are lit along the prowl..
To top things off ( as if this wasn’t enough already), demonstrations are offered on both Friday and Saturday. I’m going to list them, because you won’t BELIEVE how many kinds there are. Check it:
WHOA! Talk about people sharing the love in the art world.
So you wanna move here yet?! : ) I love it when events like this come around. It’s so great that the arts are celebrated as a community. It makes for like the best weekend ever.
