The Ultimate Mother’s Day: 17th Annual Art in Bloom
Photographers, painters, jewelers, and horticulturists display their hard work under the warming sun in downtown Medford, proving that spring is in the air.
May 13 and 14, Art in Bloom will celebrate its 17th year with over 95 local artisans showcasing their talents and work and making themselves available to the public. The event will take place in the Commons, where anyone can spend the afternoon visiting booths and listening to live music. Event Coordinator Amy Rose says there will be “great local entertainment [and] lots of free gifts to make for mom on her special day.”
Rose shares in the press release that Walk on the Wild Side will feature various animals, such as a baby tiger, baby wallaby, binturong bear, and more. Science Works will also be present with hands-on exhibits ready to educate children and adults.
“Kid entrepreneurs will have lemonade stands that they have designed,” the press release adds. “And will be selling tastes of their special recipes created as their exclusive drink.” Among live music, attendees can see Blowin’ Smoke, Blue Lightning, and Dance Arts Academy.
“Ladies Biz Lane will have all the latests pampering products on hand to sample,” the press release also mentions. Dove Chocolates, Jamberry, Advocare, and Scentsy are among the few vendors who will be at the event. Pop Up Bar tent will also be present, offering special Mother’s Day drinks, food, and music.
Art in Bloom is a non-profit organization promoting art education and supporting local art. All proceeds help fund future events and allow artists and local vendors to participate and showcase their work.
From cute furry animals, pampering products, and special food and drinks, this is an event designed for any and every mom. With the sun shining down on the event and music echoing throughout the Commons, the day can’t get much better.
