Tallahassee, Florida--

The Chain of Parks Art Festival spruced up Downtown Tallahassee with beautiful paintings and art Sunday.

Vendors of all types or artwork lined the parks located on Park Avenue.

It's one of the largest art festivals in the region, with more than 100 artists showing their work.

There's something for everyone from paintings to jewelry. Proceeds from the event will go to the LeMoyne Art Gallery's art education programs.

Terry Rhodes comes to the Chain of Parks every year. She said, "The colors, the generosity, and the people, and everybody is just glad to be here and the weather has just turned out fabulous."

One of the vendors, Jay Kirwan, said him and his wife love coming to Tallahassee to show their jewelry and glass work. Kirwan said, "There's so many artists here and the people that live here, the local community loves art so much it's a no lose situation."

The two day art festival wrapped up Sunday. People of all ages took part in the Chain of Parks art festival. Even the children could appreciate the different types of art work.
