The City Seen: December 11-13 

Notes from the weekend

This was a busy weekend of Christmas shopping (and not just window shopping) at the Metro Justice Alternative Fair and Holidays at the Market. When our lists were checked off, City also learn about a few exotic animals at the Wildlife Educators Coalition show at MuCCC.

There were a few cultural vendors at the Metro Justice Alternative Fair, held at the First Unitarian Church of Rochester, along with knitters, jewelry makers, and a Burned Books vendor. The Neto Hatinakwe Onkwehowe Arts Organization brought sweet grass, wild turkey feathers, soap stone carvings, and other hand-made crafts. Sampa Lhundup, a woodcarver from Tibet, brought carvings that blended traditional styles with his personal interpretations.

On Sunday City went to the Holidays at the (Public) Market where there was everything from fresh cut trees, all kinds of Christmas decoration, as well as a variety of artist vendors. As we were leaving through the Union St. Gate we got a look at some new Christmas themed street art by Mike Dellaria.

Later that afternoon we went to the Wildlife Educator Coalition show where we got hands-on lessons about many exotic animals, including an African Serval, a 6 and a half foot Argentine Boa Constrictor, and a baby Capuchin monkey.
