Art in the Park 2013 Benefits Local Gallery and Students

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.-- Thousands made it out to the 63rd annual Art in the Park Saturday at Howard Amon Park in Richland.

The event displays nearly 200 vendors from across the northwest.

Art in the Park not only offers one of a kind pieces of art, it also supports the Allied Arts Association that operates the Richland gallery and gives scholarships to art students.

"There's not very many galleries and it's really important because being that Allied Arts is the only gallery, it offers a place where regional and local artists can show their work to the public and the community," said Susan Swanson, Art in the Park Director.

The event offers everything from home decor to pet accessories. The booths are open until 7pm Saturday night.
