If you need an excuse to escape down the coast, here’s a good one. For decades, Monterey Peninsula’s scenic beauty has inspired artists of all kinds who, in turn, inspire this arts festival in the streets, parks and galleries of downtown Carmel. Don’t missed renowned sculptor Steven Whyte as he creates a large piece live in Devendorf Park.
