WESTPORT, Conn. – Under sunny skies and summer-like temperatures, the much-anticipated Art About Town street party hit downtown Westport with zest Thursday after being postponed last week.
Organized by the Westport Downtown Merchants Association, the event featured live entertainment, children's activities, larger-than-life papier-mache street performers and art of various forms.
From 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., hundreds of Westporters of all ages filled Main Street and enjoyed outdoor dining, dance performances and music. Dozens of local artists were also on hand, demonstrating their crafts.
Now in its third year, the party is the official kick off to Art About Town, a three-week-long celebration of art during which hundreds of original works by area artists are displayed throughout downtown shops and restaurants.
Featured artwork downtown will be on display through June 16. Also, all works are for sale. For a complete list of featured artists and participating businesses, visit the Art About Town website .
