Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) - Art, food and entertainment are hitting downtown Grand Cities this weekend.

About 150 artists are showcasing their work for Art Fest. The vendors also compete for awards and cash prizes.

We caught up with some volunteers and participants who describe why some people drive hours to be part of this.

Margaret Brack, Art Fest Volunteer: "We have had the most fantastic music, weather and everything is absolutely perfect today. There's such interesting artists who are here and things that you wouldn't run across.”

Jennifer Brock, Art Fest Participant: “They're having a blast because they're getting to do a craft where they get messy and then they get to make something and take it home and it's for free so that's great. "

Art Fest continues tomorrow from 10 to 4.
