This was Sabree's 3rd time attending the Charlotte Caribbean Festival. The festival's location was in a cozy park with plenty of shading from the trees. A massive crowd of people came in buses and cars to enjoy what this festival had to offer. Sabree enjoyed being apart of this festival again! There was so much to see...
This was Sabree's first time to this art festival in the park. The park was shaded with trees in the heart of Myrtle Beach. It has been a long time since Sabree has been to Myrtle Beach, which she enjoyed relaxing. She was grateful for the support offered to her during her stay. Sabree offered cotton to promote her piece, "Soft Landing," and it was some people's first time seeing real cotton! Also, Sabree's work was accepted into the Art & Soul Gallery in Myrtle Beach! Visit the Exhibition page for more information.
This is Sabree's first time to the SweetGrass Festival. Sabree met many artist including the Famous Gullah Artist Johnathan Green.
Gullah Festival in Beaufort, SC was held at another location not too far away from the historical downtown Waterfront. The location was at the Technical College of Low-country and it worked out very well. Many attended and were able to walk along the dock. We saw tiny fiddler crabs and enjoyed hearing the entertainment across the marsh. We met many great people and we really appreciate all the support from the travelers and the Gullah community!!
A day before Sabree's birthday (May 5th), she along with other artists were invited to a cozy event in SunCity, SC. SunCity is a large community within Hilton Head, SC. Sabree met with the Mayor of Beaufort and the guests enjoyed the art and viewing of properties.

Our tent was located in front of this pier and we got to see people sail away. It was nice and they had a lot of fun.
Vendors are putting the finishing touches on their booth.
These people had some nice stuff. I got an original picture done in banana leaves and a lion carved out of soapstone. Then I got some handmade jewelry. Sabree got some really nice shoes!
There was a lot of really, really good lemonade. I got to taste fresh squeezed lemonade and strawberry-lemonade. Yummy!
Nice cargo van! There were many vendors here.
Lots of clothes, body oils, and shea butter!
Beautiful!! The weather was pretty for the most part. We were there for 3 days.
We will be back! The drive to and fro was worth it.
