Art Fair, Blues Fest remains a big hit

Last weekend's Park Art Fair, and Blues and Brews Fest, in New Richmond was another success.

Despite cool temperatures and some rain on Saturday, June 6, a good crowd turned out to browse the vendors and listen to music, according to New Richmond Area Chamber of Commerce Director Russ Korpela.

The Park Art Fair, held at Mary Park, has been a popular local event for 42 years. About 125 vendors showed their creations to potential buyers on Friday and Saturday.

A full music line-up was offered on both evenings as part of the Blues and Brews Fest. On Saturday, the Brews Fest offered patrons a taste of various beers from different brewers.
