Honestly I never thought of it until recently. It has taken me 33 years to realize its OK to say you"re an artist. I don"t know why but I always felt timid to talk about my art or even admit I drew or painted something... in the last three years I"ve come to terms with my talents and am totally embracing it and having such a fun time in the process. I used to always feel that the art I created was worthless and hated compliments. Wish I could have... stayed positive.
The Agricenter is hosting the Delta Fair and festival wristbands on August 31-September 9. You will know you are there when you smell the funnel cakes and corn dogs that give you the full fair food experience. As you enter the park purchase a wrist band so that you can enjoy everything that the fair has to offer. Browse through the many arts and crafts vendors. There is a ride for everyone to enjoy and there is a kid zone that offers fun for everyone to enjoy with the kids. You will be amazed by all of the roaming fair entertainers and taking aback when you see two people eating away at watermelons for a prize. At the end of the evening make sure to stop and take in the lights of the fair. This is definitely the top pick of things to do for Labor Day Weekend.
Kick off fall and bid farewell to summer at an outdoor festival. The Labor Day Spectacular at Wintergreen Resort includes an arts and craft show, live music and more. The Taste of the Mountains Main Street Festival in Madison offers old-fashioned family fun for event wristbands all ages.

Humankind"s lunar exploration history saw the opening of a new chapter on Thursday morning as the world"s first explorer of the moon"s far side landed at its destination after a 26-day space journey.
The Chang"e 4 lunar probe, the latest step in China"s endeavor to explore the silver sphere, landed at 10:26 on the Von Karman crater in the South Pole-Aitken basin and then sent back a picture of the landing site shot by one of the monitor cameras on the probe"s lander, marking the world"s first image taken on the moon"s far side.
The picture, published by the China National Space Administration, shows the place where Chang"e 4"s rover will be heading to roam and survey.
The successful landing formally inaugurated the world"s first expedition to the far side that never faces the Earth and is expected to fulfill scientists" long-held aspiration to closely observe the enormous region.
Tidal forces on Earth slow the moon"s rotation to the point where the same side always faces Earth. The other side, most of which is never visible from Earth, is the far side of the moon. Though the far side has been extensively photographed by spacecraft, starting with a Soviet probe in 1959, no probe had ever made a soft landing onto it, so scientists around the world had not been able to conduct close observations and surveys of the region for decades.
The probe conducted rapid position adjustments when it reached to an altitude 6 to 8 km above the moon. The descent then paused for a while at an altitude of about 100 meters as the spacecraft needed to detect and analyze the inclination as well as possible obstacles at its preset landing site so it could autonomously avoid hazards.
Chang"e 4 was lifted atop a Long March 3B carrier rocket on Dec 8 at the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in southwestern China"s Sichuan province.
It consists of two parts – a lander and a rover, and the two carry eight mission instruments including two jointly designed by Chinese scientists and their counterparts in Sweden and Germany.
With its investigation into the far side, particularly the Von Karman crater, the Chang"e 4 mission will enable scientists to discover what they haven"t known about the moon and deepen their knowledge about the early histories of the satellite and the solar system.
Researchers also can take advantage of the far side"s shield against Earth"s interference to make clearer observations into deep space, scientists involved in the program expect.
Chang"e 4 is the fourth lunar probe China has launched since the country"s lunar program was opened in 2004.
Named after the goddess of the moon in Chinese legends, the first Chang"e spacecraft was launched in October 2007 to verify China"s lunar probe technology, obtain lunar images and perform scientific surveys. The Chang"e 2 followed in October 2010 to carry out high-definition imaging of the moon and investigate landing conditions for the Chang"e 3. Chang"e 3, lifted in December 2013, was a milestone in the country"s space exploration history because of its status as the first Chinese spacecraft to land on the moon and also the first man-made craft to touch down on the lunar surface in nearly four decades. Chang"e 3 released the first Chinese lunar rover, Yutu, on the moon. Yutu worked there for around 1,000 days.
