Looking for something to do this weekend? Head downtown and enjoy the art and music on display for the Spring Arts Festival.
It’s a fun show and usually a great way to spend a few hours. Strolling through the historic district, soaking in the sun and beautiful art while music strays off the nearby stages filling the air. The festival features hundreds of artists, from around the country.
