On July 3 and 4, 2015, the Lakeshore Art Festival will feature hundreds of artists and crafters, a children's lane, street performers and interactive art for all.
The Children's Lane, themed "Step into Art", will be completely interactive with a colorful scavenger hunt leading children through hands-on booths including drawing, story creation, sculpture making and free-form chalk expression.
Many favorites will also return to The Children's Lane including the popular performance stage, Barnyard Express mobile educational farm center, Home Depot Builder's Workshop, Arts & Carafes canvas painting and inflatables.
Throughout the rest of the festival footprint, live and interactive art will abound with professional chalk artists, street performers including musicians, magicians and more, Wine and Canvas painting classes and the Muskegon Center for the Arts community canvas painting project.
