4. Live art
One of the beautiful things about the festival is how much live art you can witness. They have an artist create a piece of work on the fountain stage in front of an audience and you can bid for the piece right there! There are also artists drawing with chalk on the ground all around the showcase, which is really neat to watch. We hardly ever have the opportunity to watch an artist create their piece of work, so it’s cool to see their methods, body language and hard work unfold right before your eyes.
