Downtown Art Show Draws Thousands

By James Lomuscio

With food vendors, musicians and 135 artists showcasing their work in 144 booths in Parker-Harding Plaza and Gorham Island, downtown Westport today took on the air of a riverfront summer festival as more than 4,250 persons attended the 41st annual Westport Fine Arts Festival. Image

The Westport Downtown Merchants Association (WDMA)-sponsored, free event ran from 10 am. to 6 pm.  and resumes Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Promoters are optimistic for a similar turnout.

“I think this is fantastic,” said Lee Papageorge, owner of Oscar’s Deli, who was busy selling hot dogs from a cart.

In addition to hawking hot dogs, Papageorge also was focused on other kinds of dogs, counting the number of art lovers who brought four-legged friends to the event.
