LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - The Arts for All festival wrapped up Sunday, and despite a little rain people still came out to enjoy the art, food and music one last time. Festival-goers made their way around Sheplar Park in Lawton, looking for that unique piece of art to take home.

Chris Smith, who comes to the festival almost every year, says she loves the festival because she always see something different at every booth.

"We just come out every year because it's just a neat thing to do and to see all the different things out there,” said Smith. “When you have difficult people to get Christmas presents for, it works!"

Artists come from all over the U.S. to sell what they have made. The Arts for All board focuses on bringing in a good balance of booths to the festival.

Kris Gill, who an artist chairman with Arts for All, says they are really fortunate to have a community that cares about art.

"You know what we are doing is that we are raising money for the different art groups in Lawton,” said Gill. “There are 6 different groups. Plus, we teach kids. We've got a great kids area. We teach them to begin with art. Some of them come back in a few years later, and they are an artist that applies for a booth."

An artist is being picked Sunday to have their art featured on the t-shirt design for next year’s Arts for All festival, and to have a free booth.
