On July 9th 2021, we had an amazing night in downtown Phoenix at the Art Night event that we setup at outside of Cha Cha’s Tea and Lounge. This was our 2nd event outside that we’ve done and our very first event with Art Night, we’re so excited and looking forward to the next one that we’re part of.
While setting up we were instantly shown love by everyone that was part of the event, vendors, artists’, everyone; it was a beautiful experience. When we were setting up we immediately became friends with Janelle Kinsey (local pottery artist). Our booth was right beside of each other so we shared lights, watched each others booth, and even helped each other break down and pack up at the end of the night. We saw our friend Claire from Scottsdale Zoom, and a lot of familiar faces from visiting the previous Art Night.
While at this event we were enjoying the live music and the wonderful people stopping by our booth when everyone’s phone got an emergency notification about a dust storm that was on the way, after getting the message we all looked behind us and it was there already. It got extremely windy very quick and all we could taste was sand as we were holding onto Janelle’s tent to keep if from blowing away. Everyone at the event were assisting others with with their stuff also while we at our booth with several others helped to pack up Janelle’s stuff and our stuff during the storm. Everyone got out of there safe and the band played until the last minute, it was a beautiful night and we’re so thankful to have been a part of that wonderful community.
