Residents gathered at stark park for the art in the park event.
There was dancing, and it was also a place for artist to present their work and for other vendors to hock their wares.
Organizers say the annual event is important for the community.
“It's lets you know that we're here. It lets you know that we have something to offer. It's an economic boost, fun," said organizer Dennis Moore. "it’s something to do on a Saturday when ordinarily you wouldn't have something to do."
