Downtown Benton Association's third semiannual Creative Arts Festival drew a steady stream of visitors Saturday morning.
Organizers said optimum weather conditions apparently contributed to the success of the event.
"Everyone seems to be having a good time," said coordinator Wanda Posey.
Dianne Roberts, who operates an art studio in the old Gingles store building where Books 7 Baubles now is housed, said she was pleased with the response the event was driving.
Original artwork was displayed at the event, including some created by Roberts' students.
