Keith McCord Reporting It's one of those summertime events that people look forward to every year, or in this case, the past 38 years. On Park City's Main Street the Kimball Arts Festival is in full swing this weekend!

Susan Thomas said, "Oh my goodness, we'll have 20,000 people a day looking at art and eating food." Add to that checking out framed paintings, photographs, pottery and guitars made with special wood from Utah. If your feet get tired, you can sit and do some people watching!

The Kimball Arts Festival is the longest running arts festival in the West. 220 artists from all over the country are here displaying their creations, along with a lot of music and food.

Sandy Davies says, "Well, I love the creativity and all the things people do, and having these kids see it and get ideas."

Earlier this week, the festival got started with an art auction and gallery stroll. Bruce Brock, said to be the world's fastest auctioneer, helped bring in thousands of dollars.

All the events this week, help raise money for the Kimball Art Center, located at the base of Main Street.

Susan Thomas said, "So this weekend all the money that is raised goes to the non-profit community art center, and we do year-round art exhibits, art education and art events."

The Kimball Arts Festival continues Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on historic Main Street in Park City.
