34th Annual Arts For All Festival

Lawton_This week's rain isn't putting any sort of a damper on this year's Arts for All Festival.  Friday marked the official opening of its 34th year.  There are over a hundred booths with all different kinds of art...jewelry, painting, and photography.  It also features live music and the culinary arts...with all sorts of tempting foods. 

Executive Director for Arts For All Bobbi Matchette says all the rain did cause some worries, but the festival is in full swing. "The thing that brings people back is a chance to celebrate as a community and to be together, just families, and we do it on the Mother's Day Weekend, so mothers come, families come.  We eat, listen to music, buy beautiful things, and just a chance to laugh and be together," Matchette said.

There's something for everybody-- photography, pottery, Native American flutes, paintings, jewelry, music, and something a little different. "New this year is a Wonderful Wine Garden.  We have five wineries that we've selected - some of the best in Oklahoma and it'll be a new experience for festival goers," Matchette said.

The festival is held at Lawton's Shepler Park, on Gore Boulevard between 4th and 5th streets.

It's open Saturday from 10am til 8pm and Sunday from 11am til 5pm.
