Get ready to party like its 1913

Published: Thursday, May 2, 2013 at 09:17 AM.

Over the weekend, the City Commons will be abuzz with an art fair joining the regular farmer’s market as local artists set up to sell their wares and share inspiration with the community.

The event is being orchestrated by John Parker.

Nelson and Dana Boyer of Boyer Signs are working with the St. Joseph Historical Society to create a Timeline Wall to be on display for the duration of the celebration.

Using old photos scanned at recent events, the group has collected and is working to chronologically organize the images to show the past and present of Port St. Joe. The wall will stand 30 feet long and seven feet tall, displaying the town’s heritage as far back to 1913 as possible.

The timeline photos will also be collected into a book printed specifically for the event and available for purchase during the festivities.

Parker and the photo committee are hard at work on the details.

To help residents and visitors get into the centennial mood, Steve Kerigan and Boyer are collecting vintage artwork, relative to the community, to hang in the windows of vacant buildings in the downtown area. These works will show off the deep artistic roots of Port St. Joe and entertain and inspire passersby.
