2009 BearFest Easthampton, MA.

Starting on June 13, 2009, Easthampton City Arts is hosting a major public art event in the City of Easthampton, Massachusetts. The Easthampton Bear Fest revolves around an exhibit of life sized bears (20 large bears and 15 small “baby” bears, which have been decorated and painted by local and regional artists). The exhibit runs through October 15, ending with a City-wide, week-long celebration of the arts and an auction of the Bears at the Log Cabin Restaurant.
