4th Streets Taken Over by Art

The annual Fourth Street Arts Festival took over Bloomington's Fourth Street, just west of campus, last Saturday and Sunday.

Art and handicraft vendors from Maine to California set up booths along Fourth and Grant Street to sell hand-carved, painted and designed crafts of all kinds: jewelery and clothing to paintings and sculptures.

One of the best parts of being a student at IU Bloomington is going to school in a town that revolves around the university. Most major Bloomington events take place within a 15 minute walk of campus and oftentimes provide discounts for students who bring their IDs.

Going to the Festival with four of my friends bright and early Saturday morning was a great way to start off my weekend and enjoy lovely fall weather.
