Tallahassee, FL-Tallahassee celebrated its 13th annual LeMoyne Chain of Parks Art Festival Saturday.

Hundreds came downtown for the event. The festival showcased more than 150 artists from across the country.

This year's event also included musical acts, local theater as well as food.

Organizers say the event draws in tens of thousands of people from across the Big Bend every year.

"It gives us an opportunity to show our work and certainly Tallahassee has always been receptive to the arts," said artist Lonnie Rich.

"I liked the jewelry. I liked all the handmade jewelry. But I'm sure once I get to eat something, that will be my favorite part," said Lexi Rosen who went to the festival for the first time.

The two-day event continues Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
