Envisionfest

Envisionfest was held this past weekend.  It is a community festival with
food, arts, music and information about Hartford.


Nicole distributed brochures with information about the different school options in Hartford.


Jeannette is the Popcorn Powered MaMa.  She catches popcorn in her mouth. 


Hartford's Gay Men's Chorus entertained with beautiful a cappella music.


This singer and guitar player was good but I couldn't get her name without interrupting.


Tom is an artist who makes prints.


Beth and other volunteers from HYPE (Hartford Young Professionals and Entrepreneurs) dressed
like Waldo and walked around answering questions and giving directions to visitors.


The tall gentleman in the red coat is one of Anne Cubberly's NightFall puppets.


Diana (left) makes "upcycled" fashion from discarded clothing.  Her niece Samantha helps.

We misssed each other, Jack. There were many "pro" looking photographers walking around Envisionfest. My chorus performed where you pictured the Hartford Gay Mens' Chorus at about 1:20 PM. Great event and we had a good crowd.

What a variety of things going on at this event. I have to say I love the upcycled clothes. I might have had to buy something there.

This festival had so many wonderful participants! I'm a big fan of men's a capella and I like the idea of recycling clothing, especially worn by young people.
