2015 Main St. Fort Worth Arts Festival

They say that Texas always does it BIG, well this past weekend Fort Worth hosted its 30th annual Main St. Art Festival and this was no exception. This arts festival has grown over the past several years and I was happy to attend this past weekend's festivities with some friends and my daughter. Stretching several blocks long the whole experience took over Main Street from Tarrant County Courthouse to the Ft. Worth Convention Center. With hundreds of artists (some of the best in country), great live music, one- of-a-kind foods, mojitos were so delicious & popular and the weather was perfect it made for a great experience. Best of all it was FREE ( minus food of course). Take a look at some of the things I got to see and experience below. Enjoy!
