  • Hannibal’s Central Park was filled with colorful booths on Saturday, Aug. 2, where busy children were making African masks, Chinese dragons, Native American totem poles and other artistic items from around the world.
    They were attending the Hannibal Arts Council’s annual free Wild and Wacky: Around the World celebration.
    They also watched a karate demonstration, decorated T-shirts, painted a box town and tried their skill on drums.
    Four-year-old Maggie Hicks was hidden behind her African mask. She had also painted a picture on a T-shirt.
    Chloe, Trinity and Tanner Chamberlain were also decorating T-shirts, as was Alice Stewart.
    Among the group learning to draw a Celtic knot was Mariah Mayfield, 7. Nearby, Heidi Mundle was making a dragon.
    Luke Koenig, 7, was creating an African tribal mask.
    Ella Carroz enjoyed making a native American totem pole.
    Michael Gaines, executive director of the sponsoring Hannibal Arts Council, explained why he was wearing a kilt. He had been dancing a Scottish dance with the children, led by Elaine MacFarland from Scotland.
    Gaines was pleased with the weather for this outdoor arts event, and with the crowd of children and adults who filled Central Park.
