Although the weather forecast was rain for Saturday, June 11th, the 10th Annual Berkley Art Bash saw sunny skies and no rain at all! It was a fabulous day in downtown Berkley! 12 Mile Road was filled all day long with crowds of people enjoying the awesome selection of art by our 110 artists and our students artists. A variety of musical performances and dancing by our youngsters entertained the crowds throughout the day. A Delicious variety of food and treats were provided by our vendors and our Berkley restaurants, and bargains galore could be found at the sidewalk sales. Henna tattoos, sand art, and an inflatable slide and moon bounce kept our young ones busy. The Art Bash was bigger and better than ever and we appreciate everyone who joined us! A HUGE thanks to April McCrumb, Art Bash Director and owner of catching fireflies and the yellow door art market. We absolutely could not do this event without her!
Our Volunteers that helped set up and close down the fair, guided artists into the fair, helped at the chamber tent and our teen volunteers that helped in the Chamber tent all day long selling tickets and water.
