You know summer is coming when the Trinidad Artisans Market opens. The market runs through Labor day every Sunday from 11 am to 3 pm.
The town is packed today with locals and tourists and many of them stopped by to enjoy some music from "The Fabulous Blue JayZ" Karrie Wallace on guitar and vocals and Marla Bartlett on a cool looking base. You can check them out at http://www.bluejay.pnn.com/
Penny Gunn is the organizer of the weekly events ( giving peace sign in photo). She tells me plans are in the works for a Thursday or Friday, once or twice a month music event, on the patio at Kihishs Catch Cafe located in front of Murphy's Market.
I also heard from my neighbor Sue that her horse drawn wagon will be available for rides in town as soon as the insurance clears. She was going to a meeting today at the museum to see about establishing a hitching post at that location. Rides will go from there down to the light house and up around the old Catholic Church, past the Eatery and school and back to the museum.
I will do a whole blog about the wagon rides as soon as things are finalized so check back for that.
