Despite Windy Weather, 3rd Annual Art & Crafts Along the Waterfront A Success

By Amy Jeanroy

 

Saturday turned out to be windy and cool at the start of the 3rd annual Art and Crafts Along the Waterfront event. Despite the temperature and breeze that caused more than one canopy to be taken down, it was a fine day to be on the riverfront walkway in Calais. 

Vendors brought a wide array of items from handmade fall themed baskets to stained glass artwork and upscale wall art. Shoppers were pleased to find plenty of locally produced items, and they got an early start on their Christmas shopping. 

Tim Crowe, of Jo's Diner and Pizzeria served a huge assortment of wines, craft brewed beers and hard cider. He also brought his famous fish chowder; a welcome addition on a blustery day. 

Music was provided by Patrick Cormier, Colie Brice, and Noelle and Pete Gould and friends. 

Many visitors enjoyed having so much to do in Calais at the same time; the International Quilt Show, and Apple Fest at St. Anne's Episcopal were also going on, so there were fall themed festivities going on all over the city. 

 

“The St. Croix Chamber of Commerce likes to see the community coming together to celebrate the fall season. We like to promote our area as a destination location, and this weekend is an example of what we have to offer,” said Interim Director, Amy Jeanroy.
