Canal Convergence November 7-10, 2013

I know I promised this on Friday, but a lot of factors got in the way. 1. It started raining last Thursday night and proceeded to rain all day Friday.  This meant that it was optimal time for me to get cozy and knit all day while watching tv shows and movies.  I finished another Christmas present.

2. Friday evenings are reserved for Arlyn time in which Arlyn comes over and we just sit and either get caught up on tv shows (it was The Walking Dead this time), or just hang out.  It's lovely.

3. I didn't do it Saturday because I had work and also, it was the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who.  Arlyn, Damian and I settled in on the couch for a pizza and Doctor Who party, squeeing like the fangirls that we are.  Haha!

4. Sunday I had work again, and then Damian, Arlyn, Dylan and I went to see Catching Fire in the evening.

And finally, 6. I kind of feel hesitant talking about an event that is now long past and I don't have a whole lot to say...but I'm still going to because it was cool and I have some neat pictures from it.  So here goes.

Canal Convergence is an event which showcases artists and art pieces in a market setting.  It was held at the Scottsdale Waterfront on the bridge and surrounding areas of the Arizona Canal.  Along with the artists and vendors, there was also live music and food trucks.

But it seemed that the best part of Canal Convergence to me was the main art piece.  It is called Voyage by Aether and Hemera.  Voyage is an interactive art piece.  The little lighted boats on the water can be controlled by you on your phone!  There were several different themes of lighting including the American Flag, Fireworks and the Arizona sunset.  My favorite had to be the Rainbow theme, because of how the colors flowed down the art piece and lit up the water.

All in all, it was a fun evening of walking around, seeing what people were selling in their booths, and taking in all the art.
