The DFA 2006
Sunday closed the 20th annual Detroit Festival of the Arts.
This festival is my childhood. My parents would bring me every year. I would make arts and crafts in the children’s area, watch WSU students demonstrate their fencing skill and watch marionettes dance on stage.
I love walking through the children’s area still and watching the kids have such a fun time. Now no longer a child, I also enjoy the art displays.
My favorite Detroit Blues Diva, Thornetta Davis and her band performed at the Metro Times Stage on Saturday. It was a great crowd. Everyone was dancing and having a great time. Before the second song started, she pointed over to me and said, “This one’s for that gentleman over there.”
So that was my highlight. How about everyone else? Who attended? What were your highlights of the festival?
