 This afternoon, I set out for Historic Congress Park, off Broadway in Saratoga Springs, on the last Saturday of Summer 2019. A lovely blue sky made a great backdrop for my drive and the park scene. My original motivation was to attend this years’s Saratoga Art in the Park, thanks to a reminder from painter Ivy Yuan [Artbyyvy]. But, I found myself focusing  on only a few art exhibits (mostly familiar art and artists from the Stockade Art Shows), and instead marveled at all the lovely settings, nooks, etc., in the grand old Park.

Noelle Adamoschek’s Freehand Design mosaic art also caught the light and my eye at the Park. The following tile columns are representative of art and art show scenes I enjoyed today.

Congress Park itself was dazzling today. My photos might not do it justice, but it would be a crime not to share some of the images.

As with any fine urban park, people of all ages were enjoying the amenities. And, people were quite friendly. As when I strolled Broadway’s retail blocks earlier this summer, I again left hoping to return in the near future. Here are a few more images of my brief stay.
