Walking down Roosevelt Row has become an art form in itself. Avoiding the pitfalls of light-rail construction and handling the transients asking for money -- all while trying to catch the eye of that handsome indie fellow whos on his way to Carlys -- is no easy feat. But weve gotten some great practice with the twice-monthly art walks and the late-night stumbles home from The Lost Leaf, so were definitely ready for the 2007 Roosevelt Row Harvest Festival
. The day will be packed with live music by eight Arizona bands, a whole crapload of vendors, childrens activities, and the chance to check out local businesses. Four Peaks Brewing Company will host a killer beer garden and unveil a new brewski created especially for the event. Also check out the Roosevelt Action Association Home Tour
(tickets are available at the festival) and make a quick detour to the "DECK"
exhibit at the nearby Bragg's Pies Factory Building on Grand, where just about every artist in town has contributed a modified skateboard deck. The fest takes place in a blocked-off section of Roosevelt between Fourth and Seventh streets.
Sat., Oct. 20, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., 2007
