Now, amid the shades of night, in this park artists alight. To their finest works will we, which by some shall purchased be; and the revelry there measured ever shall by us be treasured. Forsooth. The Firehouse Art Center heats up the (relative) cool of the evening by assembling 30 artist booths filled with wonders to behold or buy wrought from wood, clay, glass, paint and other media, as well as tempting festival foods, hands-on art projects for kids and even live music from local bands for those inclined to shake a hip or two. Rejoice and be merry, for it’s time again for the Midsummer Nights’ Fair.
