A full weekend in living Colours

Colours: The Shafter Arts Festival is back and there's something for everyone. Just look at the schedule. The festival goes from Thursday, Feb. 22, through Sunday, Feb. 25, starting with the traditional Shafter Community Chest drive-thru Spaghetti Dinner on Thursday, followed by Coffee House Strings music at the Tin Cup.

On Friday, take a history tour of the Minter Field Air Museum, then the Art Gallery at the Ford Theater, and end the day at The Tin Cup with an evening of jazz.

Saturday, Feb. 24, is packed full of great events for everyone. Run or walk in the 2-mile Fun Run, see the car show and tour the Shafter Depot Museum, including the Art d'Cans exhibit. For the kids, there is the Youth Art Workshop, Polymer Key Chain Workshop, and you can also meet the childrens books author Jennifer Gardiner, with her new book [BEGIN ITAL]Count the Bears.[END ITAL]
