Gamma Acosta - Street Artist. Longmont's own Gamma Acosta will be back again for the September Walk. The world has become his painting surface. He has a way with a spray can that took him beyond the hardened parameters of street writing.
Today, he's working all the time: creating murals inside and out for businesses across the Front Range and even showing off his talents at Art Basel Miami and other out-of-state venues.

Bub Comedy - locally brewed laughter - will be performing from 4-8pm on Main street between 3rd and 4th Ave.
