Puttin’ the “Art” in Arts Park

If you haven’t checked out the Hollywood Arts Park, man, you’re missin’ out… Big Time. Expertly landscaped (there’s a musical tree) and done out in retro-futuristic design, it really is the perfect place to stroll at night. (Remember when that simply wasn’t an option in Young Circle?) And the perfect time for you to explore that new space is this weekend during the Hollywood Festival of the Arts: a juried art & craft show with oodles of live bands. It kicks off on Friday night with music by Brendon O’Hara and the Humble Ones (7 p.m.) and ¡Suenalo! (8:20 p.m.).

Saturday and Sunday is when you get the full flavor of the event; that’s when the park is overrun with vendors displaying their handiwork. Do a little early Christmas shopping (there will be everything from sculpture to jewelry) to a soundtrack of live jazz, classical, soul, and even bagpipes. Get the whole scoop at www.downtownhollywood.org, and click “Events”. Saturday’s hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday’s are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
