Art in the Park sees good weather, nice turnout

More than 20 local artists displayed their works during Historic Jonesborough’s Third Annual Fine Art in the Park Festival. Held Oct. 22-23 at the International Storytelling Center Park, visitors were treated to a variety of different mediums, including sculpture and handmade jewelry.
