Every year our quaint little town puts on a festival called "Pastels on the Plaza". It's a fundraiser for North Coast Children's services and it's a very busy and fun event to come to.
Local businesses make a donation to North Coast Children's Services for each of the sidewalk squares on the downtown plaza and artists donate their time and talent to fill them up with original pastel artwork.
The typical Saturday Farmers Market makes an additional festive backdrop to the event. Our town is not short on Artists, and I am always amazed at the wonderful images when the event is over.
