The Columbus Arts Festival is here for the weekend. Today, on a hot, sunny summer day, there were big crowds checking out the artist stalls and buying the food offerings. There are some interesting offerings in just about every artistic discipline you can identify.
Be forewarned: Shady spots were in short supply and much coveted. Festival-goers will be happy when the small trees recently planted in the new sections of the Scioto Mile park grow up, leaf out and provide some relief from the sunshine on days like this.
