wave that flag

The Curtis Memorial Library “How-To Festival and Block Party” was on Saturday, September 16th, and if you were one of the over 800 people who attended, you already know how much fun it was! The four-hour event was packed with activities such as face painting, bubble making, weaving, live music, and all kinds of different workshops which took place both inside and outside the library. The warm, sunny weather combined with the fact that Middle Street was closed to traffic made the atmosphere truly festive.

My table was set up right outside the library entrance, and my workshop theme was “paint a community prayer flag”. I had a huge stack of different decorative papers that were primed and ready to go, a big plastic tub filled with acrylic paints, and a large selection of brushes of all shapes and sizes. People of all ages were encouraged to (and did) participate, but it seemed like the bravest ones who stopped by were the kids! These did not look like what you would call “traditional” prayer flags, but the intent was very similar: putting out positive energy into the community and beyond. Here are some photos from the day!
