Cuppa Java’ set for Friday evening

The Baldwin Community Arts Council will have its Art Walk finale, the always popular "Cuppa Java," tonight in downtown Baldwin City starting at 7 p.m. Last year's event had to be moved inside the Lumberyard Arts Center because of threatening weather. Tonight's forecast calls for none of that.

It’s that time again. “Cuppa Java” will again take center stage in downtown Baldwin City Friday.

The finale of the Baldwin Community Arts Council’s Art Walks always brings a crowd and that’s expected again this year.

“For $7, you can pick out your own pottery mug to keep, enjoy a cup of freshly brewed coffee and choose from a selection of delicious homemade desserts,” said Tom Wilson, who is heading up the event.

While the hand-thrown pottery mugs and treats are always a highlight, the usual events associated with Art Walk will also be in place.

“Musical entertainment will be provided and area artists will display and sell their work throughout the downtown area,” said Wilson.

Art Walk has become a mainstay in the community, with events such as the July version where free ice cream is given out and the Community Band plays. The August Art Walk was better attended that usual, with nice weather instead of the usual 100-degree heat.
