Taste of Bloomington, June 22, 2013
Just a couple blocks away on the courthouse square, another favorite Bloomington festival will take place from 10 am to 6 pm. The annual Arts Fair on the Square, now sponsored by the Bloomington Playwrights Project, features a variety of beautiful and functional creations from local and regional artisans.
The annual waiter/waitress race pits the best of Bloomington's restaurant service professionals against one another for a year's worth of bragging rights! Each team of servers competes to see who can complete the obstacle course quickly and without spilling the beverage they're carrying. The first team to complete the task and pop the cork on their bottle of champagne wins! The race will take place at 4 pm.
All Smiles Clown Company will be on hand for face painting fun for a small fee of $5.
