PLUS….. Bath Fest Children’s Art Show (awards ceremony at 1:00 pm)
Bath Fest will again feature the artwork of local students from Bath Elementary School. The range of talent shown by last year’s artists was amazing. We know that the brilliant young artists of Bath will once again enlighten our senses.
Judging of student artwork will be fair and unbiased. A panel of judges will meet before the event to select winners in each of the categories, which are based on the artist’s grade level. First, second, and third place winners in each category will receive special recognition on the day of Bath Fest.
