HUNTINGTON, New York, May 29

Even with the possibility of rain, art will shine in Heckscher Park in Huntington this weekend as the annual Art in the Park Fine Art & Craft Fair returns this Saturday and Sunday.
Sponsored by the Art League of Long Island, the fair will celebrate its 47th year with more than 70 artists and craftspeople set to make an appearance. Handmade crafts – such as paintings, photographs, ceramics, jewelry, and sculptures – will be on display and for sale as the fair begins at 10 a.m. and closes at 5 p.m. both days.
To celebrate these artists and craftspeople, the Art League will also be supplying awards for those that exemplify “superior artistry and craftsmanship,” according to a release issued by the Art League. A raffle will also be available for guests with proceeds that will benefit the Art League, a not-for-profit organization.
This year’s event also promises to present live art demonstrations by Art League instructors, along with family-friendly, hands-on activities and live music. Also on-site will be food vendors to keep the crowd ready and fueled for art.
Admission is free.
