Many awards were given out for the Most Dedicated, the Most Enthusiastic, the 1st to Upload Election Results, Most Patriotic Dresser and even the Poll Worker Song Bird, who sang to her team mates when no voters were present. The theme was the Red Carpet and poll workers were encouraged to come dressed as their favorite movie star.

The 33rd Annual Art in the Park was a wonderful experience. I had the opportunity to go to the event this past Sunday, and was amazed at just about every aspect of the art show. Held at Tom Varn Park, local artists, as well as those from around the state and across the country, lined the paved walkway that meandered through the beautiful location.
Jan Knowles is the Projects Coordinator with the Hernando County Arts Council (HCAC), and has worked with Art in the Park for about 15 years. When we spoke, she explained some of the history behind the event and how it came to be.
