Fifteen years. The blink of an eye … or it can seem like forever. The time from birth to middle school in the temporal realm. In the land of ones and zeros, it marks the rise of the iPhone and social media. The East Side’s beloved Tomato Art Fest celebrates its 15th anniversary this year, for those who wish to mark the passage of time with the Wolf Peach. It really does seem like yesterday when the whole, crazy idea became a reality. From its humble beginnings, this celebration of community and togetherness remains committed to honoring its original credo: “A uniter, not a divider, bringing together fruits and vegetables.” Words to live by. And thank God for that.
Peace, love, and tomatoes.
