Sherman, TX - Hundreds of people got in touch with their artistic side today at this year's 27th annual Sherman Arts Festival.
The Sherman Municipal Lawn was covered with more than 100 arts, crafts and food vendors from all over Texoma.
Various musical groups provided many types of entertainment throughout the day. And festival workers say the event isn't simply about art, but benefiting the entire community.
"It's just outstanding, it's a true volunteer activity, we are non-profits, none of us try to make a profit off this, and as a result it's a volunteer activity that's good for the community and the community is good for us because of that,” said Larry Wall, Chairman of the Arts Festival.
Wall said this was one of the most successful festivals they’ve had, mainly due to the wide variety of creativity demonstrated by local artists.
There was a judged art show and sale for ages 18 and up, youth art show, woodcarving show and sale, Fun Runs, pumpkin patch and face painting of the kids.
