October brings the much welcomed cooler weather and a number of outstanding outdoor activities to Annapolis. One of the first this month is the 2013 season’s final outdoor First Sunday Festival on October 6th from noon until 5:00 p.m. During the five hours of festivities, West Street is closed to cars and becomes a fun-filled, outdoor, free, family affair of creativity for all ages to enjoy.
The street transforms and becomes a stage filled with live music, entertainment, and over 100 booths of art, jewelry, house wares, accessories and so much more. Plus several restaurants become outdoor cafes with perfect seating to watch the festivities, fun and people go by. So begin your busy October and fall season in Annapolis by making the First Sunday Art Festivals part of your plans on October 6th.
