An artsy Sunday afoot in Leucadia
One mile of North Coast Highway 101, between Jason and Marcheta streets will be the venue for Leucadia Art Walk. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., 101 artists will show and sell their work, bands will play and hundreds of visitors will mingle at the colorful festival. The highway will remain open and no traffic diversions are planned.
Morgan Mallory sez, "Every piece of art is going to be presented by the artist who crafted it, we do not want window salesmen, hawkers, Chinese imports or cheap T-shirts. We want unique, one-of-a-kind stuff."
For the convenience of visitors, two of the double-decker buses will make continual trips to the event from City Hall and the Encinitas Commuter Station, at Vulcan Avenue and D Street, where parking is abundant and free.
Musical performances are scheduled at bandstands throughout the event. Performers include Randy Fontaine & The Swingers, Joe Hager, Peter Hall, Julie Mack, Stevie Lynn & Triple Threat, Drums of Fire, The Flounders, Adrienne Nims, Full Revolution, Frank Leong Hawaiian Dance & Song, Ms. Magic Meryle Cohen, Megan & Austin Burns, Loren Golden & Marie LaMar.
One stage will be located at Leucadia Roadside Park on the Coast Highway at Leucadia Boulevard. At that small and grassy patch, the 101 Artists Colony will stretch out a large, blank canvas for children to paint.
