SAN FELIPE - Blues & Arts Wrap Up

The 2010 Blues & Arts Fiesta was a huge success. The mind-blowing musical talent and the dozens of accomplished artists exhibiting their work and the 2010 International Blues and Arts Fiesta largest and most entertaining yet.

On Saturday, March 27, the fourth year the fiesta was held along the picturesque Sea of Cortez in San Felipe Baja California.

The day started with March winds blowing powerful gusts and uprooting many artist booths and even blowing one clear over the perimeter wall. Tecate tents here staked down and by lunch time, the wind had stopped and the party was in full swing.

The amazing stage was the centerpiece of the festival. The musical acts this year was astounding, and if the musical talent alone was not enough to ignite excitement and please the senses, the selection of one-of-a-kind art pieces by the regions top artists, was sure to do it.

The Blues and Arts Fiesta money has been vital to the building of an orphanage that gives abused or abandoned children a safe place to rest their heads. This year an additional home for children and women was supported.

This increasingly popular and growing festival is only possible through the tireless efforts of the San Felipe Lions Club, whose extraordinary volunteers work many months to organize and produce it, and countless organizations and behind-the-scenes individuals who work to keep it growing in talent and attendance.
