17th Annual Sugarloaf Crafts Festival
275 Acclaimed Artisans to Showcase Contemporary Crafts

and Fine Art in Somerset, NJ

Are you looking for a great way to introduce your kids to crafts and fine art? Well, next weekend a great festival will be in town and you will have the opportunity to attend for free! Kids under 12yrs are free anyway, but your admission will be free too! The organizers have given me 6 tickets to give away. Simply put your kid's favorite form of art–whether it's drawing, painting, collage, etc. And, if you're feeling generous also leave an art or craft tip below and I'll give two tickets to the first three facebook commenters at: http://www.facebook.com/mirabest

Good Luck!
