Yep...the little elementary school across the street from my house did it again. Another successful art & wine auction and street fair to boot. As the school FunFest website declared: "A day celebrating our community with music, games, refreshments, the Kids Art Auction, Wine Cellar Giveaway, a Giants Memorabilia Raffle (featuring autographed balls from Panda, Zito, Lincecum, Wilson, Posey and more)"
Due to some playground and courtyard construction currently in progress at the school, the neighbors along Shrader Street agreed to allow a street closure for the day so that the festivities could spill out onto the street. Despite the day being a bit overcast and windy, the turnout for the festival was great. I grabbed my phone and took some video here and there. My neighbor, Danny had to tease me right off the bat by saying that he "overheard" one of the booths that was going to be in front of my house involved "sticky, messy crafts". (He knows how fastitidious I am about the outside appearance and the sidewalks...lol). In years to come I'll probably be the Old Man on the block who goes out once a day to sweep the front of his sidewalks...God help me.
I was really amazed by some of the "kids art" that was up for auction...real talent out there! One of the highlights for me (as you'll see in the video) was discovering my neighbor Dorthy doing the Hula with her dance buddies on one of the playground areas. I've seen her perform before, but this time i got it on camera. She'll be famous on YouTube before you know it. ;-)
