Park City's Main Street was packed with people Sunday for the 34th annual Arts Festival.

More than 200 artists from around the country brought their creations, plus all sorts of street entertainment and food.

The two-day event usually brings out more than 100,000 people, and the weather cooperated-- barely!

"This morning we were a little worried," says Sandy Geldhof of the Kimball Arts Center. "It was pouring from 8 am to about 10. So we thought that would impede from Salt Lake and outlying areas. But as you can see, the sun's out, it's beautiful, and (the rain) cooled things down a bit. So it's comfortable out there, and the crowds are great."

"I think it's just absolutely great," a festival goer says. "The art is very varied. It's a lot of neat stuff. And finally the weather has cleared, so I think it's fabulous."

Mike Keim of Teryaki Grill told us, "When we get busy, we go through about a couple hundred pounds of chicken in an hour. So it can go pretty fast."

And, from artist James Lacasse, "The festival's good. The interest and reception to my work is great. This is the first time I've done it."

The Park City Arts Festival is very well known around the country, and it's always very well attended by artists and visitors.
