Last week you may have heard of or attended the Ann Arbor Art Fair on Main St. in downtown Ann Arbor. It may have been a tad inconvenient for those navigating to other destinations downtown, but for those who attended its a whole other story! Parking was a little a hectic so the A2 shuttle sure came in handy…
… there were sidewalk vendors along the booths…
…and there were tons of booths for craft lovers… from homemade outdoor/indoor decor, eccentric Ann Arbor knick-knacks, jewlery, and more…
…including celebrities! David Arquette Tweeted this photo on his twitter account @davidarquette of himself at the A2 Art Fair last Wednesday…taking a break from filming in A2 and surrounding areas the new thriller Scream 4, along w/ his wife Courteney Cox-Arquette, Hayden Panetteire, and Emma Roberts.
