Mingle and Jingle in Belmar

The sky was sunny today, and the grass is still green.  No snow, since the temperature was near 70 degrees.  Still, Alan was dressed for the occasion to help us get into that holiday spirit.  Time for Mingle and Jingle at the Boatworks.

The refreshment table, now that felt a little more like the holidays.  Lots of red and green, even the tortilla chips were dressed for the season.

 We had the cafe tables all set up in the back and the crowd quickly gathered.  We estimate that nearly 90 people came through to enjoy food and drink, the company of fellow artists, door prizes, art on the walls from those who had applied for the summer Solo shows...

... plus live music from Cheryl Parker and friends, a mix of jazz and holiday standards.

In addition, the Winter Solstice Artisan Market was open for the usual Sunday hours and an interesting mix of items were being sold.  The band had to run off to another gig, which helped draw things to a close.  At the end of the day it still felt more like summer than winter, but everyone was having a good time.
