2nd Saturday Artwalk! 4-11-09

In spite of the weather, it was cloudy and cold, the turnout for last night's Downtown Pomona Art Walk was good, actually very good. Several new faces as well as the "usual suspects" were seen strolling the sidewalks, touring the galleries, dining in the restaurants, attending the farmers market or viewing the classic car and motorcycle show. There were belly dancers at Aladdin Jr., bands on Thomas Street,and a great musical performance in Thomas Plaza by the School of Arts and Enterprise students, who, by the way, practiced all week and gave up their Spring Break to perform. Kudos!

Everyone seemed to have a good time, and the exhibits were outstanding. The Mayor and his family as well as Council members and their families enjoyed the evening as well. To crown the evening, as though it were a beacon of celebration, the Fox sign was proudly lit with its distinctive red and blue neon shining. The Fox marquee displayed announcements of upcoming events; Fox First Night (the gala grand opening) and the return of Smogdance to Pomona. While an accurate count of attendance was not possible, the farmers market reported over 1100 visitors. No matter how many came, it was great to see everyone enjoying themselves.
