10 Tips For Kings Mountain Art Fair 2016

 

Kings-Mountain-At-Fair 201510 Tips For Kings Mountain Art Fair 2016. September 3, 4 & 5, 2016.

My apple tree is bursting with fruit, a sure sign of autumn.

Despite many years in San Francisco I still expect Fall to bring crisp air, jackets, and deep blue skies. Instead the sun is finally making its way back into my yard, my jacket is in the closet, and my grill is smokin’. Bye, by fog.

For this East Coast transplant, sunny days in San Francisco ironically means Fall is approaching and with it the end of the fair/festival season. But it’s not over yet.

Nestled in a redwood forest with some of the finest handmade arts and crafts on the West Coast, Kings Mountain Fair is a lot like the grand finale at the 4th of July fireworks extravaganza – one last magnificent burst of wow before it all fades away.

Free admission.
