Well shoot, for not posting this yesterday. The Main Street Book and Art Fair will be Sat, Jan 30 from 3-6:00 p.m. in Losner Park on Krome Ave. This will be the first year to add in artists and we have a nice group that will range from photographers to other mediums. One of the exciting new books is Robert Moehling’s story about his multi-generation family and the history of the Robert is Here fruit stand that has become such a big tourist attraction. Three of us will be giving presentations at the Veteran’s Memorial in the top left corner of the park next to the Seminole. The local writers group, the Lamplighters, released Alligator Tales last year and they’ll be on hand as a group along with Majorie Doughty who have her books as well. Yes, the South Dade Wood Turners will be there with beautiful work that blends art with craft.
The dance performances that were planned for the December Holiday event were rained out and they’ll be on stage with a taste of their spring recitals. Once again, the Kiwanis will be doing their book give-away and then at 6:00 p.m. as the tents are folded, there will be a movie-in-the-park with a brand new Peanuts movie that will be great for families. In addition to the downtown restaurants that are open (Uncle Tom’s BBQ, Casita Tejas, El Toro Taco, Stick & Stein/Flagler’s Martini Bar), Chefs on the Run will be set up in the Park. We’ll ask Mother Nature to please be kind because it’s going to be a terrific afternoon/evening.
I can’t figure out how to post the image of the poster because it’s in PDF, so here’s the Facebook link. They’re updating with news of the event every couple of days. https://www.facebook.com/homesteadmainstreet
Please help spread the word and come out if you can. You’ll have a wonderful time.
