We had three different kinds available to try. Each are unique; however, they thread and work the same!
Last Summer, I heard from a few NANI members who attended this festival, an enjoyable time had by all. DH, DD, + I went to the festival, too. We had a wonderful time. We went to the sidewalk sale at the nearby Outlet Mall and rode the shuttle from the Outlet Mall Parking Lot into Washington Park. We went thru all the booths at the Art Festival and the artists had spectacular displays. Unique, creative, and I still kick myself for not purchasing a necklace made out of the ceramic plates! A one of a kind object ; ) The shuttle was a gigantic air conditioned bus provided by one of the casinos. Was easy on and quick return to our vehicle at the Outlet Mall. I look forward to this event + hope we will be able to attend this year!
