(image credit, artscape)

Artscape is here! The largest free arts festival in the US! Today through Sunday the are around UB, MICA, and Station North will be full of performances, visual arts displays, and a whole lot of family fun activities. That, and artsy people, lots and lots of them. This is the 28th year for Artscape, an event that regularly attracts 300,000+ people.

Here are some things to expect:

1.) Crowded conditions if the weather is nice, which it surely will be.
2.) Street Closures
3.) Bands you've probably never heard of, but play some great music.
4.) Free concert at the BSO, 3pm Saturday.
5.) Arts and craft tents for the kids, so bring the little ones!
6.) Lots of people riding the Light Rail. It may get crowded, but it' seriously the only way to go.
7.) People with an eclectic sense of style and dress.

Streetclosures:

Monday, July 13 at 7am through Tuesday, July 21 at 4pm - Unit block of East & West Mt. Royal Avenue and 1100 – 1600 blocks of Mt. Royal Avenue, closed from North Avenue to Charles Street, north and south bound
Thursday, July 16 at 10am through Monday, July 20 at 6am - Impact begins on Charles Street. Plan Ahead!

Get yourselves up to the action this weekend. If you haven't been before check it out, it's wild.
