Two festivals - energy, art - in one in Prescott Valley
The town government will host energy and art festivals on the same day to draw bigger crowds.
Both the Creative Energy Fair - now in its third year - and the Fall for the Arts - formerly the World Arts Festival - will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. next Saturday in Tim's Toyota Center, 3201 N. Main St. The events are free.
The events will not conflict with each other because the arts festival will take place in the bullring and the energy fair will be on the concourse, town planner Ruth Mayday said.
More than 40 vendors have signed up for the energy fair, Mayday said. Some vendors will display battery-powered cars outside in the parking lot.
She came up with the idea for the energy fair to enable vendors to display products that encourage energy conservation and the use of alternative energy sources.
Fall for the Arts will feature a combination of activities, Parks and Recreation Director Brian Witty said. It will kick off with Sky Daddy and the Pop Rockets performing music from the 1950s and '60s beginning at 10 a.m.
Witty said the Arts and Culture Commission will set up a make-and-take arts and craft zone for children 12 and under.
Other activities are a touch-a-truck event for children 10 and younger who enjoy big service vehicles.
"We will probably get close to 50 big-rig vehicles that will be out there," he said.
Fall for the Arts will conclude at 5 p.m. with a performance by Chicago blues band Shri.
