ART AND MORE: FOURTH SATURDAY ART WALK
Sure, there is plenty of art to see on the Fourth Saturday Art Walk in the Pinellas Arts Village. But there are also affordable shopping opportunities at various studios and guest vendors. And there is an experience unlike any other with the Alice in Wonderland art ride at Pompei Monster Factory. It’s an actual ride that takes you through the psychedelic colors and characters from the beloved story. That coincides with the “Shadows of Wunderland” exhibit at COVE. Check out the Studios@5663 to find animal-centric cards, jewelry and prints from Pergamo Paper Goods. And guest vendors offering everything from olive oil to upcycled tie accessories give it a market feel. Free, $5 to take the ride. 4-9 p.m. Saturday. 5663 Park Blvd., Pinellas Park. (727) 342-2593.

FRESH START: CHIC DECOR AND ARTISAN MARKET
Does anyone else design rooms you don’t have when you visit home decor markets? The variety of styles found at the Chic Decor and Artisan Market in Wesley Chapel makes that easy to do.

The market features hundreds of Pasco County vendors and numerous styles, including farmhouse, rustic, shabby chic and industrial. If you’re truly out of room for home decor, there is handmade jewelry and clothing. Activities include creation stations and craft workshops. Live entertainment and food trucks make a day of it.
