.
When I arrived near the Riverfront Arts Festival in Columbus, I wasn’t sure where I was supposed to park.

.
Since it was located right next to COSI (Center of Science and Industry)…
.
…there was plenty of paid parking in the area…
.
.
…(even if you rode in on a bike).
.
But, fortunately, I was able to cash in on my occasional good fortune…
.
.
 …and find this parking spot shortly after 6 when metered parking became free.
.
.
Scouting my way to Genoa Park along the Scioto River…
.
.
…I found myself before a long row of (70+) artists…
.
.
…who offered such items as melting clocks (Hilary Wiezbenski)…
.
.
…custom knives (Jim Parker)…
.

.

…jewelry made from bowling bowls (Matt Cole)….

 …colorful funky jewelry (Melissa Woods)…
.
.
…and some cool art from Betsy Emrich and Britt Hallowell.
.
.
I even got to see Tiffany Kimmet, who I met at the Lakewood Arts Festival.
.
Happy day indeed!
.
Within the row of artists…
.
.
…I also noticed an arts council or two (Hilliard)…
.
.
…as well as plenty of balsamics and oils to taste.
.
But, in the end, I kept being led back to the center of the festival….
.
.
…where there were a few foods booths…
.

.
…a large amount of soda, wine, beer…
.
.
…(including Buckeye Vodka)…
;
.
…and an entertainment stage set up right against the river…
.
.
…with quite the backdrop, if I say so myself.
