Free fun: Art Walk

Hey hey Birmingham...

Looking for something fun (& free) to do this upcoming weekend? Well, it's time to head downtown again. This time it's for the 10th annual Birmingham Art Walk Festival. I went to my first Art Walk last year and really enjoyed myself. There are many things I love about it: seeing the incredible local talent/art we have, stepping inside offices and stores I otherwise wouldn't typically frequent and it's just always nice to enjoy a good stroll around downtown, especially at night.

But of course, what I love most about this event is that you can spend as much, or as little, as you like. There is plenty to be entertained with for free if you want to just walk around and check out all of the incredible art pieces. Or if you wanted to really, truly show your support for local artists, you can purchase a piece right there on the spot.

Either way, it's a great event and if you're in town, be sure not to miss it. You've got two chances: Friday September 9th from 5:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. and Saturday September 10th from noon - 6:00 p.m.
