Thursdays on the Coast Artwalk Halloween Scene

Thursdays night artwalk in Carlsbad ended it's 2011 series with high spirits and excitement for 2012.

Thanks to the advertising from our October sponsor, the Carlsbad Innthe kids  arrived and produced a banner for the Halloween on Elm street event that was held on Saturday was donated to sponsor Gary Nessim of Homelife Village Realtors.  Kids were laughing,  and people were browsing as the stores light up for the occasion.

Carlsbad Village Association Board Members, Justin Jachura, owner of Senor Grubby's and Jon Wontz were manning the booth and ready to direct the traffic to all participating locations. While the New Village Arts Foundry was holding and interactive art session with wonderful music and reception with studio artists attending.

The Phantom Art Gallery held art and story reading of their artists art.  A book being done for their gallery while the COAL hosted a reception along with Lynn Forbes Sculpture Studio.

The Village rocked with Mark and his band a new comer and artist on the block, and favorites Rick and Carm returned to brightened up the Vintage Bistro with song bird Janice Thompson providing the atmosphere  for the Carlsbad Chocolate Bar.  Creating the atmosphere for what was to follow down the streets for the evening with Branci Caldo and more

Visitors Phil and Susan Stone "this is such a great event my kids and husband loved it!.... such a great way to spend the evening".

The evening rolled into fun, smile and excitement for all who attended and the youth art took center stage with Picassos Garden Studios  students art work by instructors T. Margaurite and Andrea Team and The Stardust Arts display presented by Cheryl Ehlers and manned by a very proud parent Johnna Cotton of Oceanside.  While the artists filled the areas with color, drama and creations all to the amazement of many  visitors it was enjoyed by all.

As the evening rolled on KV and the Blues Academy took the stage to mojoe...the way into the evening with fantastic rock and roll oldies that placed a jiving mood in the Village Faire Plaza.  If your toes were not tapping you certainly were in the wrong place to celebrate the close of the 2011 season.  It certainly got you into the mood for wanting just some more time and light to enjoy more of the evening.

As the evening came to a close, and the dew filled the night air, the evening winded down to a close you could hear the echos of the evening spirits, the electricity lingered in the air as the music of KV and the Blues Academy played on to the close.  Singing,  Oh Carol don't let me steal your night away."
