We have an event in the city where I live called Bearfootin Bears which are tall fiberglass bears sculptures that are decorated by artists and then in October they are auctioned off and the money that is raised helps local charity organizations around the area. They are a lot of fun to track down, you actually get a map telling you the locations of each bear and it's fun for tourist and locals alike to take pictures of them.
My card that I made to sell in the gallery where I'm located is made in honor of the "arsty fartsy" bears. I try to make cards that reflect local current events, I find that most everyone, whether a resident of the area of a visitor on vacation likes to send them home to their friends and family.
if you're in the area, I do hope you stop by. :)
