Southwest Florida loves its arts and crafts shows.

A special one was hosted over the weekend on Bayshore Drive in East Naples, offering patrons a glimpse of progress and the future on a once underachieving street.

Progress is personified by the newly expanded Naples Botanical Garden; storefronts here and there sport fresh looks; and the dream of a per campolo forming- and visual-arts center is coming into view.

To be sure, much work remains ahead, and most of that will be up to private property owners when the time is right.

But for now the arts fest was a nice update — and preview of what is possible.
