This Saturday, Corpus Christi will host its first Texas Body Paint Festival, according to the Corpus Christi Caller-Times. The event begins at 6pm and attendees may choose to have their bodies painted by the artists. And there is still time to sign up to be a body painter. Tony Martinez, one of the festival’s coordinators, told the Caller-Times, “We want to showcase local artists but also artists from all over Texas.”
“With this event, we really want to emphasize on the artists and their medium,” Martinez said. “We want people to know that this isn’t about ‘boobs’. This is about true art and creativity and a space for artists to showcase their work.”
At 7:30, the chicken wing-eating contest begins. They know how to have fun down in Corpus!
