The Rain Date is Sunday, October 6 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
What is Fiber Bombing?
Fiber Bombing is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colorful displays of knitted, crocheted, or other fiber– rather than paint or chalk. It is the action or activity of covering objects or structures in public places with decorative knitted or crocheted material, as a form of street art.
