Comments from the artists that have participated in AITP!...


"I just want to say again "Thanks" for running such a wonderful, relaxing show  - Art in the Park.   I once again - as a participating vendor - greatly appreciate the cheerfulness of your volunteers, always friendly and certainly very helpful.  As well, I thank you for providing the close parking (that is very welcome - thanks) and good booth spacing, giving us all enough room to put up our tents, and space between, not right on top the other, tent pole to tent pole.  And I always thank you for sending out the booth space and parking space information in advance of the show date.  That way, even if we get to the park early, we can start setting up immediately.  Thank you -- I really appreciate all the effort that your volunteers put into the success of this art show.  Thanks.

PS - the brownies in the morning were very good!..."
