Summer in the South

10 Jun

Summer in the South is always special. Time seems to slow down, people spend more time outside and communities plan events for everyone to enjoy. Such events include the Summer Night Downtown Art Walk in Auburn, AL on June 14 from 6:00 – 9:30 pm.

Downtown Auburn will be transformed into an art district featuring artists, vendors, photography, live music and a pie bake off. The theme of this year’s Summer Night Downtown Art Walk is PIE, and people are encouraged to display their culinary art through entering the baking contest. As the Auburn Art Association put it, “What better way to bring our community together than through pie!”

Wrapsody will be sponsoring booths for Jane Sweet Jane, Jayne Morgan Art, and Old Clutch at the Summer Night event.

Jane Sweet Jane is a local store in Opelika, Ala. that sells handmade home décor. Products include pillows, lamps and even Christmas stockings.  Each item is unique and carefully made with a sweet Southern charm. Jane Sweet Jane also customizes items for her customers with pictures of loved ones and pets.

Old Clutch was started near Birmingham, Ala. by two sister-in-laws who were looking to add personality and uniqueness to clutches, iPad cases and laptop cases. Each piece is completed with a vintage feel, and no two clutches are exactly alike.

There are shows and festivals similar to Auburn’s Summer Night throughout Alabama. Summer festivals like these provide the golden opportunity for members of the community to spend time together and really appreciate summertime in their hometowns. These events promote fellowship, southern hospitality and unity through fun activities!
