We were so lucky to have lovely weather this year, despite a brief shower on Sunday. This year’s Art in the Park had a constant flow of appreciative visitors, and we hope that sales were good for the artists. Music permeated the park throughout the weekend, thanks to the sound system provided by Alex Trombly, and performances by musicians from the Keene Music Festival. The event went very smoothly thanks to the hard work of our dedicated committee members, Main Tent volunteers, and help from the Keene High School Interact Club under the direction of Doug Mealey. Thank you to all!
