The 2019 MainX24 Southside 24 hour festival is Saturday and Reflections Gallery is participating. 

Start the morning with a little joyful cheer and catch the gallery crew before they open the shop participating in the EPB Southside MainX24 Christmas Parade. The parade runs down Main Street starting at 10:30 a.m.

From 12-6 p.m. Reflections Gallery will host its own Block Party For The Arts during MainX24. For the occasion, it is partnering with local non-profit Art 120, who is hosting an International Food and Craft Market and Art Car Display along 17th Street.

There will be a Paint Your Own Ornament event in the studio, and free cider and hot chocolate in the kitchen all day, plus artist demos inside.
