Festival of Arts set for Saturday

CLEMSON — The sixth annual Clemson Festival of Arts is scheduled for this Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. in downtown Clemson at Catherine Smith Plaza and Jaycee and Abernathy Parks.

There is no charge for admission.

This year will introduce the first-ever “Parade of Characters” for all ages featuring princesses, superheroes and other popular costumes. The parade kicks off the festival at 10 a.m., and judging of costumes will take place around 10:45-11 a.m.

The Clemson Festival of Arts is different from other area festivals. Children, family and friends will be able to enjoy an “art full” Saturday. There is a Kids Art Park with lots of creative, fun hands on projects going on all day. In addition to fine, handcrafted art for sale, there will also be artists’ demonstrations in woodturning, glass bead making, fiber art, clay and book art sculptures. There is also an Art in Action tent to make and take art projects such as painting, fiber art, mixed media, clay and jewelry making throughout the day.
