Arts and crafts show brings money to area

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.-- More than five thousand people came out to the Arts and Crafts Show Friday-Sunday at the TRAC in Pasco.

This is the thirteenth year of the show. Most artists continue to come back year after year. They come to the show from all over the West Coast.

Event organizer Cheryl Custer-Branz say the crowds grow each year, meaning good business for local hotels and restaurants.

"The economic impact of a show like this is huge. Just from the amount of rooms we fill at the Holiday Inn Express with artists that are staying in town to all of the local businesses," said Branz.

A diverse group of crafts were on sale and even more will be available when the show returns in November for the holidays.
