Looking for the perfect arts and music fix this weekend?  How about one that also helps out a local organization dedicated to ending domestic violence?

Look no further than North Central Windows Program's (NCWP) third annual First Harvest "Lammas" Community Arts and Music Festival.  The day of fun for the whole family is Saturday, July 26 at Superior's Billings Park. 

The public is invited to attend and enjoy art by local artists, safety demonstrations, fresh produce and homemade food, as well as enjoy talented musicians from the area.  There will be many fun and unique activities for children and door prizes too.

Saturday's line up includes local musicians Ambrosia, Morrow, Samantha and Ethan, and The Brothers Burn Mountain.

Music starts at noon with safety and wellness demonstrations between each band.  Duluth's own DJ Mouse will be cooking it up with his famous Caribbean style food.

Lammas is an Anglo-Saxon festival traditionally held on August 1 to celebrate the first wheat harvest and protection of the crops.  Lammas is all about brining the community together and that's where NCWP got the idea for this festival.

"NCWP serves the community an we are supported by the community," NCWP Executive Director Susan Meyers said.  "This festival gives us the opportunity to come together and showcase NCWP and other local human service and protective-based community agencies while promoting local musicians, local art and healthy food."

Admission is $5 for adults.  Children under 12 are free when accompanied by an adult.  Again, the festival is Saturday, July 26 from noon until 8 p.m. at Billings Park.
