Arts for All kicks off in Lawton

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - The 42nd annual Arts for All festival kicked off in Lawton Friday, and artists and visitors from all across the country made their way to the event.

The event continues into Saturday and Sunday. 

Over 80 booths will be open, and with graduations and Father's Day coming up, that means there are plenty of possible gifts available.

Meanwhile, bands, dancers and singers will provide live entertainment on the festival's three stages.

And for those looking for something to eat at the festival, there are 21 food vendors on site.

Event co-chair Ronda Norell said proceeds from the soda sales at this year's festival will go toward education to keep the arts alive in southwest Oklahoma.

"Art is alive, hands on and we've got to keep ourselves educated on it,” Norell said. “It's important for that reason because we're educating little kids all the way through our age and older to keep art alive."

The festival starts back up Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
