Celebrating Petworth: a photo gallery of the 2016 Festival

The beautiful artwork created by Aniekan Udofia

The third annual Celebrate Petworth Festival was a great time! The musicians were amazing, the vendors were great (the Petworth History tent was packed!), the cutest dog show was, well, cute, and the 3-on-3 basketball game was great to watch. A lot of talented kids (and some not-too-shabby adults, either). The full gallery (about 150 photos) is below.

If you see a photo of you that you'd like, shoot me an email and I'll be happy to send you the high-res version.

So, so much work goes into planning and making a Festival like this happen. I want to give each person involved a big shout out for their hard work. These people volunteered their time over the past couple of months to create the Celebrate Petworth Festival so everyone can enjoy it. You all rock.
