During two Trails and Sails weekends and the last Block Party, the Committee for the Arts (CFTA ) was pleased to participate and spread awareness about municipal art. One event: during the block party we were at Main and Parsons, near a very busy Markouk booth (always busy at Cape Ann Farmers Market, too), fried dough and candy truck (not just kids buying!), Dress Code’s charmingly illuminated booth, and Joe Ciolino’s. What a gorgeous night! We spoke with dozens of folks including the group of twenty youth from Ocean Classroom en route from Maine to Puerto Rico with a stop in Gloucester and a night out downtown.

Gloucester Block Party is making some “best of” and “top” event lists. Here are a couple of nice mentions:
The Essex National Heritage Commission is the organization that ran the fantastic Trails and Sails weekends (34 towns, and hundreds of FREE events!) Don’t miss it next year!
