The Hovland Summertime Arts Festival kicked off its 14th season with large crowds on Friday turning out to admire and purchase arts and crafts by regional artists and hear some of the North Shore's most beloved musicians perform in the pavilion behind the Hovland Town Hall.
The Hovland Volunteer Fire Department booth featured arts and crafts from its members to help raise funds for the efforts of their firefighters and search and rescue volunteers. Volunteer members were also on hand to recruit new members to the fire department, as well as first responders and volunteers for the S.T.O.P team.
Artisans and crafters had booths outside of the Hovland Town Hall with several other artists displaying their creative goods inside the Hovland Town Hall. More than 25 different artists were on hand to offer their creations to festival visitors.
Visitors from the Twin Cities area, greater Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Ontario were on hand for the Festival. One attendee hailed from far away Argentina.
