“From wood to painting to glass and photography, we have a wonderful selection of vendors,” said Beth Ann Fudala, special events director for the Bonifas Arts Center. “We’ll have about seventy great places for you to shop, and there will be artist demonstrations, music of all kinds, a Young Artists’ Market, the Artists’ Raffle, and food. In addition, Jeanna Harmon will bring her belly-dancing troupe to perform between musical acts. Ludington Park in the summer is nearly perfect,” Fudala added.
