Lehigh Avenue Arts Festival

Philly Puff

The 7th Annual Lehigh Avenue Arts Festival was held this past Saturday in Philadelphia's Olde Richmond section of the city. The LAAF is the Portside Arts Center scholarship fundraising event of the year. The Philly Puff featured Philadelphia's first ever inflatable sculpture contest.
The weather was between bright sun and a tiny bit of soft showers that the crowd didn't seem to mind. There was plenty to see and do and eat to the sounds of a good mix of live performing bands.
Each year this festival continues to grow and attract more and more people joining in the fun.
