INDIANOLA: Blues, Bikes & BBQ presents Art & Antiques at BB’s

The Blues, Bikes and BBQ Festival will present Art and Antiques at BB’s in Indianola, June 11
 
The tents “open” at 9 a.m. June 11 for Art at BB’s! More than 40 artists including a caricature artist will be on hand in Indianola with their wares. One of the interesting offerings is corrugated tin crosses painted in a variety of styles. Indianola’s own stained glass artist will there, too. Hair feathering, handmade pottery, paintings, iron work, handmade wooden items, and jewelry are just some of the things that will be available in the museum parking lot and surrounding green spaces. Come have your “funny” portrait done by the caricature artist, get your hair “feathered” and take home some original art for your home.
 
A new event for the festival is “Antiques at BB’s. The dealers will have antique linens, glassware, candlesticks, furniture, and lots more to choose from. Come early because these are one of a kind items from yesteryear and once they are gone, they’re gone.
 
In addition to art and antiques the Open Air Market will also open at 9:oo. The market is in place every Saturday and will be especially busy on festival day with fresh, homegrown vegetables, plants, jams, jellies, and baked goods. Don’t miss out on this.
 
Remember the KID ZONE across the street with the petting zoo, bicycle parade, pet show, and car painting. Festival food including snow cones and corn dogs as well as catfish and funnel cakes will be available. The gate for the BB King Concert will open at 2P.M. on the west side of the museum. BB King will be there, of course, as well as Willie Clayton. What a wonderful day in Indianola. Fun for all and music all day long.
