The crowds enjoy Art in the Park 2009.

Art, music, poetry, dance, Arts Bus projects for kids and a food menu that includes hot dogs and “not” dogs will be featured during Siskiyou Arts Council’s 2nd Annual Art in the Park event this Saturday, Aug. 21, from noon to 5 p.m. in Mt. Shasta City Park.

Local artisans and crafters will have booths displaying their wares, from photography to altered and artistic clothing,  and Wisper Krimmer will be selling her paintings, cards and jade jewelry.

Live music begins at noon with Panther Creek Bluegrass Band, named for the mountain meadow. They’ll be followed by Chick Music, featuring Paula Reynolds, Chris Prim, Michael Gregory, Gerry Smida and Doug York and Bay Area musicians Jean and John Mazzei. Wild Blues Yonder from Scott Valley will follow at about 3:30 p.m.

Belly dance troupes the Mountain Gypsies and Moon Goddess will perform, and poets Ahnee and Heidi Goebel will represent the literary arts.

Art in the Park’s family-friendly menu of food and drink available for purchase includes barbecued hamburgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers and “not” dogs, corn on the cob, watermelon, peanut butter and jelly, and beer, wine and soda. All sales benefit the Siskiyou Arts Council.

The children participating in the Remi Vista programs have grown the produce for their salsa and will be selling jars as well as chips and salsa.

The public can purchase a raffle ticket to win this year's Shasta Quilter's handmade quilt.
