The first major outdoor art festival of this season hits the streets of Hyde Park Village this weekend, October 27th & 28th, with a blast of pink! Howard Alan Events has partnered with the signature breast cancer division for the American Cancer Society, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research.
Along with many of the merchants and exhibiting artists displaying special pink handcrafted gift items, there will be a special giveaway happening where you will have the chance to support the cause and make a $1 optional donation for a chance to win an original “Fight Like A Girl” specially decorated bra. This one of a kind garment has been designed and donated by the pink petticoat. In addition, the lucky winner will receive an after hours private shopping party for ten people at the pink petticoat store, which will include champagne and desert or wine and cheese as well as store wide discounts, a value of $200! Every penny of the proceeds will go directly to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. The drawing will be held on Sunday at 3 pm and the winner will be notified via cell phone.
The festival will include more than 150 of the finest artists from over 30 different states as well as the top local talent, including photographer Linda Mayes (from Venice, FL), mixed media artist Susan Lane (from Key Largo, FL) and jewelry designer Lori Kay Olling (from Tampa, FL). Each of these artists will have their specially created artwork on display and for sale in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Be sure to check out the Lexus exhibit where you’ll see the finest in car offerings on display along with the Werther’s Original exhibit where you can sample their delicious candies, have your picture taken in the photo booth and much more!
Come down (or up!) and enjoy a family friendly event which will run Saturday and Sunday from 10 am through 5 pm along Swann and Dakota Avenues in Tampa. See you there!
