Sunday morning at the Country Plaza Art Fair

Big weekend in Kansas City. The 19th annual UnPlaza Art Fair at the KC Art Institute, the 79th Country Club Plaza Art Fair, a Chiefs game (I think? everyone is wearing red) to name only a few. Camera in hand and market boots on, I headed out early to beat the crowds at the Country Club Plaza Art Fair.

The Plaza Art Fair is considered one of the best in the country. I usually love markets and fairs for the fantastic people watching. I have determined after years of living in KC, the people watching is NOT so exciting at these events, lots of sweatsuits and eating. Not much is left of the old guard anymore on the Plaza. The independent owners of retail stores and restaurants have been slowly replaced by big box stores and restaurants like in much of the USA. But the Plaza is a beautiful place and the Spanish influenced architecture never disappoints.

Favorite art booths 
I am in the process of creating a new category on the loaded trunk for kids, clearly my favorite spots today reflect this focus!

Favorite people
Favorite store windows

It is a beautiful crisp fall like day in KC and this was a perfect way to spend part of it.
