My World - Festival of the arts

This month the City of Frederick First Saturday celebration coincided with the Frederick Festival of the Arts. The juried arts and crafts show was held along the banks of Carroll Creek. Music, food, kayaks and paddleboats were available, providing entertainment for all ages. Over a hundred artists exhibited (and offered for sale) their work. There were other artists creating works at several locations in other locations downtown.
