Festival draws young crowd
- Written by Jeffry Tupa
The annual partnership between Humble ISD and Lone Star College-Kingwood to celebrate the artwork of today's young faces took place on April 26. The festival allowed students whose art work was shown, or who performed with a musical group, to receive recognition for their creative accomplishments. Participants also enjoyed hands-on art activities, storytelling, a Silent Auction and more. The event allowed families to experience a day of free, creative fun. Festival Gold and Silver Sponsors included Alspaugh's Ace Hardware, Jerry's Artarama, Stott's Hideaway Ranch, and AT&T of 4536 Kingwood Drive. The event also was made possible thanks to hundreds of volunteers and sponsors of individual attractions.
