WABENO - People went out to Wabeno this weekend for its first ever Art and Music Fest. Musicians performed in the band shell while local artists spread out to show their products.
There were food and drinks as well as workshops for people to learn more about art.
"This year we've had about 20 musicians performing on three stages," said Friends of Wabeno Chairperson Mary Beck. "And we've had maybe ten artists doing demonstrations, showing people what they can do and what they can buy."
The rain Sunday didn't stop people from having a good time. Volunteers hope to make this an annual event.
They hope it'll help attract more people to the area while helping local businesses.
"I think it's something to bring people to Wabeno to help our local businesses, to provide some fun, let people know what we have to offer," said Beck
The two day event was the first of its kind in Forest County.
