If you made it to the Salt Fork Arts and Crafts Festival before the rains, then you were probably busy looking at almost one hundred vendors selling their work in Cambridge. The festival began Friday and runs eleven o’clock to five o’clock Sunday. Besides all of the artwork for sale, a few people are actually creating the art there. Officials said the weekend has gone really well. “I’ve heard people say they haven’t seen this many people in years. So I see constant streams of folks going by with shopping bags, which is the ultimate reason we want them to come here,” said Lynn Abrams-Spilker, festival director. The 35th annual event hosted things like woodcarvings and art classes. She said the best part about the festival is the way it brings out the community. “There’s volunteers from all walks of life. You have older, you have younger. We have the Cambridge High School key club that has been here all week working. We have kids who walked in and said how can I help?” said Abrams-Spilker. Besides the artwork, the festival boasts a wide menu of food and entertainment. Zane Scott will take the stage tomorrow at two o’clock.
