Performers and artists have filled Zane’s Landing Park.

The 4th Annual Y-Bridge Arts Festival began Friday. There will be something for everyone Friday and Saturday. Friday’s entertainment includes an opening ceremony and live music.

"We’ve got twenty-four tents set up for the artists, and we’ll have close to one-hundred artists in those tents. We have the stage set up for our musical entertainment, we’re real excited about that, we also have the orange tent that’s always up and tonight at nine we’ll have the Pyrotechnika fire dancers going on," said Dana Matz of the Zanesville-Muskingum Chamber of Commerce.

The arts festival brings together artists from all over and even offers something special for kids.

"We’ve got some good entertainment going on, some very good art, we have a lot of local artists, we have artists coming in from nine states. We have food, we have beverages and the children’s area," said Matz.

Artist’s booths open tomorrow morning at 11 a.m. with live entertainment beginning at 11:15.
