More Monday Murals

Another installment in the Lake Placid Mural journey.





.These are all from the mural entitled "Lake Placid Country Fair".

The completed size of this mural is 108 feet wide and 18 feet high!   It celebrates the Lake Placid Country Fair that has been held every year on the Saturday and Sunday of the first full weekend in Frbruary.  It began in 1966 with a handful of like minded people who wanted to show their work. 

One thing I never mentioned about this town of murals is that in many of the murals, something is hidden for you to find.  In this one, there is someone that "everyone will recognize".  I wasn't sure I found it...or him.  But that is part of the fun of the murals!

Stay tuned for more from the interesting Town of Murals!

Those are beautiful - I bet it's fun, (but time consuming!) to try to find the hidden object in each one.

My gosh...these are incredible images. I especially like the train coming right towards me.

It is a great piece of work with lots to see, but a hidden him or it, that is a bit to much for me. You will have tot give more clues.

Wow! They do not believe in doing anything small in Lake Placid. I'm amazed at the size of this thing. The naïve style seems perfect for a country fair. I searched too for the hidden surprise, but couldn't find it. If you know, let us in on the secret. In the meantime, I thank you for participating in this week's Monday Mural.

I like the idea of trying to find someone in each one. It seems a great way to really involve the community.

The idea of a country fair in the first weekend on February sounds odd to my ears, but I bet it is warm enough down there!

Linda all these murals are awesome! I will have to come back and look for the hidden. I do see a picture taker in the last one!
