Millard Canyon Arts Festival Proposal

Mike Hickman is proposing organizing a small arts event with The Altadena Arts Council (Gene and Mary Ann Stevenson):

"Considering the rich artistic history and heritage of the Arroyo Seco/Millard Canyon area, we thought it might be nice to have a "Millard Canyon Arts Festival" in Loma Alta Park in the area next to the community garden as a way of promoting the arts and artists in the surrounding community.

"We would like to have artists and craftspeople set up booths to sell their work, food vendors and perhaps live performances during a Spring or early Summer weekend (at this point we are looking at 2010, and hoping it might develop into an annual event).

"We think there is also room to include several other elements of the community who may wish to participate with informational booths or activities , such as conservation organizations, trail groups, equestrians, service groups, law enforcement/public safety, etc.

"We are just in the early formative stages so I thought I would tell a few friends and ask what you think about this idea and if you have any suggestions. If you would like to be involved or if you know anyone who would like to be involved, please let us know and pass this info along.
We hope to arrange a public meeting soon to discuss this proposal."
