Art in the Park, the free festival of the arts, continued today and tomorrow at Forest Park. With its emphasis on hands-on participation, the festival offered free workshops on art, music, dance, theater and ethnic culture.

Jetty Island Days continued with ferry rides to Jetty Island from the marina on 18th Street off Marine View Drive. Once there, visitors could view exhibits and take interpretive nature walks.
