A festival celebrated the first wheat harvest in Superior Saturday.

The First Harvest Lammas Community Arts and Music Festival was a little earlier this year. It is usually on August 1.

Folks enjoyed art, safety demonstrations, fresh produce and homemade food. Organizers said it's all meant to help better the community.

"Lammas means first harvest," Susan Meyers, with North Central Windows Program, said. "We celebrate the first harvest and it also means protection of the crop. We wanted to tie in community wellness, community protection and healthy living."

Duluth's D.J. Mouse cooked up his famous Caribbean-style food for the event.
