Video: A (very) quick tour of the Ann Arbor Art Fair

By Ben Freed

Exploring the Ann Arbor Art Fair can be very tiring work, especially when it is so darn hot out. To give you a glimpse of a section of the Main Street area of the fair, reporter Ben Freed spent some time Thursday walking around and checking out the artwork. Here's a highly condensed version of his travels:

Ha, I loved your video! The music is great, too. I liked everything, especially your face in the mirror and the kaleidoscope view. Yes, please do another video, it was fun to watch. Could you do a tour of all of the food booths at Art Fair (Liberty St, State Street/MI Union, and by Burton Tower) - are there elephant ears out there somewhere?

The elephant ears are indeed on Liberty right across from the Chicken on a Stick (one of my personal favorite yearly foods). If I remember correctly I think I also saw some in front of the Michigan Student Union on South State Street.

I spotted elephant ears on Liberty, just west of Main.

Sorry if I missed anyone's favorite booths. What did y'all see out there that caught your eye? I might go out exploring again today!
