The artists market at the Decatur Arts Festival was chock-a-block with great art, but the most unusual vendor I came across was Puppet Artists of Darby, MT. In addition to famous characters and celebrities, they can make a custom puppet of you. They just need a good picture. It could be the perfect gift for the person who has everything, because let’s face it–who has a puppet of themself?

Decatur Arts Festival May 29-30

Don’t miss the 2010 Decatur Arts Festival this Memorial Day weekend. My favorite part of the festival is always the artists market with 140 artists selling their wares. This year there’s something else I can’t wait for–Bonaventure Quartet plays on the performing arts stage Sunday at 2pm. Lovers of gypsy jazz and swing will appreciate Amy Pike’s singular vocals and you may just find yourself dancing to the Django Reinhardt-inspired rhythms. I also want to shout out congratulations to the group that designed the poster for this year featuring James Dean’s Pete the Cat. It’s about time–Pete IS Decatur. Love it!
