My mom wanted to take my brother to the Leonard Bernstein Festival of the Creative Arts at Brandeis today. Apparently she took him last year and had fun, so I joined them this year. She likes the festival for the fun atmosphere, art activities such as with Sidewalk Sam, and just because she likes Leonard Bernstein (I think mostly because of West Side Story).
Adam was happy because he got to do the first chalk drawing with Sidewalk Sam.
I guess my mom got to do the second one.
I came a little later and made a bird.
There was face painting, but it was busy so they encouraged parents to paint their own kids.
I think Adam was happy with how it came out.
There were all sort of activities. We saw a marionette show which was actually pretty good and Adam made a clay bowl.
There were a few bands there including a guy with a guitar playing fun kid songs, a Hindu-Rock band, and something involving two Brandeis Police cars.
I try not to spend all my time at Brandeis, but it was pretty fun.
