Weige Knives was invited to take part in the Liberty Hill Whimsy and Wonder event in May. Read more about it below:
The City of Liberty Hill is a proud supporter of the arts in the community, and on May 18, it transforms downtown’s Main Street into a wonderland that stirs the imagination and indulges the senses at every turn.
At Whimsy & Wonder, downtown businesses will transform into art galleries hosting works from local artists, live art demonstrations and live music in each gallery. Food and wine will be served in whimsical ways featuring an aerial bartender, living table and a live champagne dress.
Outside, Main Street will be filled with performers, stilt walkers and local artisans. World-renowned Magician Cody S. Fisher will wow visitors with street magic, and a strolling caricature artist will draw guests on the spot.
A children’s Imagination Garden will house interactive art exhibits and craft booths. The Imagination Garden will also feature shows by Circus Chickendog throughout the evening. Darren Peterson uses rescue circus dogs, a scarlet mccaw, juggling, unicycling, giant bubbles, an accordion, and circus balancing acts to entertain.
Festival goers will be able to watch live art demonstrations including a live body painter, sidewalk chalk artists and Austin’s very own Dirty Car Artist, Scott Wade, in action. Pedicab drivers will be downtown to transport visitors from downtown street parking and parking lots.
Whimsy & Wonder is an event like none other. Visitors can interact with artists, musicians and street performers, while being dazzled with magical opportunities to create, enjoy and be entertained. The evening promises to be a memorable experience for all ages.
Hosted by The City of Liberty Hill, the event is co-sponsored by the Orchard Ridge Life community and The Liberty Hill Independent newspaper.
Admission, wine tastings, and parking for Whimsy & Wonder are free. Dinner will be provided by Malted Grains at three different stations downtown. A wide variety of unique art items will be available for purchase.
