Hey...what about Tall Ships!?

Posted on Fri, Jun 29, 2012 at 9:13 AM

I'm confused. I am a local artist at the waterfront and I have been selling my work for a few years now during the summer months. I pay the city for my permit to do so. I spend a lot of money trying to prepare myself and everything. I heard the Tall Ships Festival was happening this summer and I was so excited to be a part of it...come to find out all local artists at the waterfront are being kicked off the boardwalk. Why? It's one of the biggest tourist attractions in the summer. People come from all around to see them and our province. Shouldn't they also see local art instead of stores selling lighthouse keychains or $10 sunglasses made in China? They might as well open up a fast food chain down there too... Why can't Halifax be different than all those towns that just become cheap tourist traps that no one ever returns to? —Angry Artisan
