Face Painting, Asheville, NC - 2013
(Click on photo to enlarge.)
Is (was) Bele Chere a family friendly festival? Well, there were certainly things going on that I wouldn't have wanted my daughters to see or hear when they were young children. There was one morbidly obese woman walking around topless and obviously intoxicated in the Pritchard Park area. Police, who had to have seen her, couldn't have been less interested. Nonetheless, there was no shortage of families with children at the festival on Saturday, like this little girl getting her face painted on Patton Avenue.
