Families from around the Duluth area came to Lester Park on Sunday, to enjoy a day dedicated to the arts.

This is the 6th annual "Art in Me" put on by Anchor Point Church. 

Kids were able to explore music, dancing, and a live puppet show.

Rick Rice said they had about 1800 people attend last year, and that the event continues to grow. He told us Lester is the perfect landscape for all people to come and be creative.

Rice also said they launched a week-long art day camp this year, giving children another opportunity to develop their artistic abilities. That will begin on Monday, the 18th, and run through the 21st, at the Anchor Point Community Church.
