Art Cars at the City Arts Celebration

City Arts Celebration Cultural Events Review

The City Arts Celebration has been an annual event in Dallas' art district for the last five years. This past weekend was our first taste of this colorful gathering of the art community.

It was blazing hot when we attended. Fortuitously, a misting station was located in the center of all of this creativity--for which we were very thankful!

As we trudged up the street, vibrant oils caught our attention, but actually it was the pottery that seemed most captivating (pic #2). We were drawn to many of these stalls to sort through hand crafted "treasures".

A cool display of "art cars" made for a photo op, while in another area elementary children performed a dance beneath a large, sheltering canopy. Live music filled the air in a variety of forms: a rock group, Tejano music and others (pic #3).

Of course, it seems every event like this has a food section, so we were thrilled to find funnel cakes, which we divied up three ways. I can't say that this event compares to Fort Worth's Art Fest, but perhaps in time it will.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
