Artists, musicians and the Community of Hope will join forces on August 24 at the Arts in the Park Festival at the Chesapeake Arts Center, located at 194 Hammonds Lane in Brooklyn Park. Local artists will exhibit and offer their work for sale, while a festival of live music will be presented from 11:00am to 3:00pm. The Chesapeake Arts Center is organizing the free event, under the leadership of the executive director Belinda Fraley Huesman and sponsor Whiting-Turner.
During the festival, patrons can enjoy live music by singer-songwriter Ellis Woodward and Fast as Lighting, and a special performance by Meki’s Tamure Polynesian Arts Group Inc. and the Dream of Reality Summer Theatre Kids Camp. The festival will also include cornhole, a moon bounce, a food truck, community resource partners, and local artists displaying and selling their art.
