Supposedly named one of the top arts festivals in the nation, with artists from coast-to-coast; lots of entertainment, and gourmet food trucks! I thought I would start the day with a leisurely stroll from my house in Old Town to The Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts where the Festival is held.  The Festival is a three-day event: Friday and Saturday, 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and Sunday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. I attended the event on Sunday and was amazed at the number of attendees as it was a perfect day: sun shining, not a cloud in the sky and perfect temperature!  You should know the weather on Friday and Saturday was cloudy, rain, windy and cold!  No wonder so many people attended Sunday’s event!  Following are just a few of the “many” photos I captured on Sunday.
