This will be our third time in this art festivalprevious sponsored by Citizens Bank & Trust and run by the Lake Wales Arts Council (LWAC). It is open from 10 am to 5 pm on Saturday, February 22nd, and from 10 to 4 on Sunday. They are expecting 4,500 visitors to one hundred artists. The festival will be on the west shore of Lake Wailes. Admission is free. The LWAC does have a websitelink, but so far all information on the festival is targeting the artists. That should change as the event approaches. I did notice that they have a Florida Nature Exhibitlink running at the time of the festival.
The Lake Wales Arts Council has invited us into their 45th Annual Arts Festival, lately sponsored by Citizens Bank & Trust. We were last there in March, 2013. The festival will be on the west shore of Lake Wailes (yes, it is spelled different from the town), along Lakeshore Blvd. The show will be open from 10 am to 5 pm both days. Besides around one hundred artists, there are food trucks, live entertainment, and a student art show. They are hoping for more than ten thousand guests this year.
