Record Crowds Expected for Rockport Arts Festival

ROCKPORT- If checking out some fine art is what you're into this weekend, then you don't want to miss this.

That's what thousands of people did Saturday as good weather didn't stop the crowds to the 45th annual Rockport Art Festival.
The weekend event is showcasing over 100 vendors with everything you want from fine art to jewelry.
If you want to escape the heat, various artists are performing in the air-conditioned hospitality tent.
John Assp, one of the event organizers say this is a crucial fundraiser for the arts in Rockport.
"I think the festival contributes to expanding our artistic community, Rockport is known for being a creative community to begin with, but the art festival really expands that and allows people to see a lot more diversity and our community expands to include the 120 artists that are here once a year and we get to see them all, and it's really a lot of fun."

If you missed it Saturday, it still goes on Sunday from 10 to 5 PM, adults are six dollars and children are only a buck. More Information on the festival can be found here.
