Flluxe Arts Festival
The parking lot of the Center for the Arts and the south end of Park Avenue was decked out for the first-ever Florida Luxe Arts Festival (FLLUXE)!! Local artists, Naomi Haverland, Chris Carlson, and Nate Baranowski, partnered with local schools to color downtown with their amazing creativity. Performers, Shane Johns Project and The Wabi Sabis rocked out the festival while Aerial Dance PC and Studio by the Sea had everyone ready to dance. This was a great event that showed off so much of our local talent!
