The sunshine came out for the Sand, Sea and Spray urban art festival in Blackpool yesterday. The free festival was spread over the weekend and locations situated at North and South shore.
First up we headed to the Victorian sun lounge at the bottom of North Pier where the artists were working away to the sounds of a Wurlitzer organ.
Underneath the glass canopy it was baking, so much so my camera lense steamed up. Afterwards my son enjoyed the helter skelter and a ride on the two storey Venetian carousel.
The festival featured forty artists, from four continents, painting live across the town.
It was such a beautiful day, we spent some of it by the sea shore and took our time ambling about the town and down by the shore.
Blackpool seems to be going somewhat of a regeneration at the moment and its great to be able to go to free art events like these. A shop selling work by some of the artists who took part in the festival is open until 20th June 2013 in the Houndshill Shopping Centre, Blackpool. Pop along and pick up a piece of original art.
