Bethesda Row Arts Festival

This weekend Bethesda held its annual Bethesda Row Arts Festival on Sat. Oct. 20 and Sun. Oct 21.

Sunday at 9:30 a.m., vendors and artists set up their booths for their second full day of the Arts Festival.
Montgomery County Police assisted in closing down sections of three main roads in Bethesda.  Elm Street, Woodmont Avenue and Bethesda Avenue were closed  to vehicles for the event.

Christopher Lydon, a glass artist from Philadelphia, sits at his booth waiting for people to stop by and look at his art work.
Some of Lydon's pieces that are for sale at his booth.

Brian Gibney of Charlottesville, VA talks to prospective customers about his jewelry.

Nnamdi Okonkwo, a sculptor from Fayetteville, GA stands with some of his sculptures which are up for sale.
Okonkwo's largest piece sits by itself apart from the rest of the booth on a wheeled platform, because it is too large to be moved by hand.

People are visiting booths up until the last minutes of the art festival. As the event winds down at 5 p.m., the area is crowded and lively.
