Gum Tree Arts Festival, May 17, 2016

Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, May 14, 2016
Last Saturday we went to the Gum Tree Arts Festival in Tupelo.

Artists set up booths in the streets surrounding the Lee County Court House. Woodworkers, metal workers, stained glass artists, painters, photographers, and many more artists were displaying and selling their creations. Just about any kind of art a person was interested in, it was there!

I loved these bird houses!

And aren't these metal pieces wonderful!

And food! This is just a small section of the food vendors. A stage with musicians was set up in this area, too.

Gum Tree Arts Festival, May 14, 2016
As you may already know, Tupelo is the birthplace of Elvis Presley, and we are proud of our native son. There will be an Elvis Festival in June.

Hope you are having a wonderful day!

  7. That looks like fun, but the food vendors are selling an amazing amount of cholesterol-raising stuff!
