Despite some less-than-perfect weather, the city had its Boston Arts Festival (a.k.a. “ähts”) at Christopher Columbus Park over the weekend. There was music by acts such as Jesse Dee, and Dwight and Nicole (who were booked to sing the anthem at Fenway Park on Sunday), installations such as Michele Auer’s popular “String Theory,” which had kids running through spaghetti-like cords that hung from above; and crafty vendors such as Lauren Passenti (jewelry) and Teresa Crowninshield (clothes). The festival was technically a go on Sunday, but some artists just couldn’t make it happen. Emily Garfield, known for her imaginary maps, tweeted, “Sadly I will NOT be at the Boston Arts Festival today because the rain isn’t good for my drawings on paper. :(”
