It was the start of the weekend’s annual Salsa Festival downtown. They closed off main street for a fundraising dinner, Adrienne’s shout, and entertained us with a lively salsa band and dance demonstrations. Adrienne got a lesson from a lovely lady at our table, but I was forbidden from taking any photos of her on the dance floor. She did well enough that I almost called Donald Trump to have her hauled south of the border. 🙂
Arriana (background, above), from Beck’s Coffee shop, was one of the main coordinators of the event. The woman does everything downtown! She’d like to make the area a formal art district in time.
I was able to introduce Adrienne to Bob Diven, one of our better known local artists and promoter of public art (he’s proposing an adobe Stonehenge-like installation for the nearby desert as a current project). Bob reminds me a lot of Dave Machen of Bundy, talented and tireless for the community arts.
