Pictures from Fishtown – Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby and the Trenton Ave Arts Fair

Fishtown hosted the 7th Annual Trenton Avenue Arts Festival last weekend, featuring the Kinetic Sculpture Derby. Thousands of people attended the two events with over one hundred vendors presenting their works and services.

The festival was held under a warm brilliant sun and a beautiful blue sky. This too could describe the spirit that flowed through the crowd.

The Kinetic Sculpture Derby was wisely re-routed through the Fishtown neighborhood. This drew many more people to the pavements, corners and their front doors. Some people, to their delight, got to see this parade of imagination for the first time.

Each year this festival grows larger and more popular. It truly has become a premier city event. (We Fishtowner’s knew that all along.)

A picture is worth a thousand words. There is no better way to express it except to come to the festival and be a part of it all.
