Now in its 14th year, the festival is a celebration of handmade fine arts and crafts, great music, local talent, and community spirit. This intimate and highly interactive event includes over 40 artist vendors, Health and Wellness vendor row, live music, a sand sculpture contest, chalk art contest, pet show, and FLOATZILLA – a floating parade of wildly decorated watercraft.
