Had a grand time at the ARTsarben fine arts festival. The BubbleYou℠ Bubble Tower -the world’s biggest bubble toy ® performed beautifully in the breeze, wafting bubbles the length of the village. I got a good workout ambling the streets with Thirsty, the Giant Parade Puppet, greeting one and all! The Artists seemed to appreciate Thirsty and the bubbles when they weren’t busy selling their art.

Curtis Weisz, of Northern Lights Steel Sculptures brought several of his sculptures from Bowndon, ND, including this wire frame deer. Sweet!
