This weekend we spent a lot of time at the Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival.  The festival lasts all weekend, and is one of the biggest ones in Pensacola.  There is definitely something for everyone – food, great music, art, and an amazing children’s area!

I was especially excited to take Little Miss to the children’s area.  We took here last year and she had fun, but I knew this year she would have more of an idea of what was going on and be able to participate more.  

We started off at the sand art table.  Little Miss still has the one she made last year and often carries it around, so I knew we needed to make another!  She had a great time picking the colors, and quickly learned how to put the funnel in the jar and pour in the sand. 

Next we headed to the bracelet table.  She had a great time picking out the beads, and she was able to put them all on the bracelet herself.  

We stopped by the paper flower table – the wind was pretty bad, so instead of Little Miss trying to make the flower herself she just picked the colors and the helper made it for her.  She then headed to the puppet table, where she had a great time decorating her puppet. 

If you’ve never been to this art festival, go ahead and put it on your calendar for next year – it’s always an amazing time!! You can spend hours looking at the artwork, listening to music, or just enjoying the great weather and people watching!
