A bit of rain Saturday afternoon was too little and too late to dampen the enthusiasm of hundreds of art aficionados and other visitors to the annual River City Arts Fest in downtown Campbell River.

Shopper’s Row was closed for the day and given over to dozens of booths in an artists’ market featuring works in every possible medium. Street performers, jugglers and Rainbow the Clown strolled the street among the visitors. Other booths provided arts and crafts activities for kids, literary arts and theatre arts, while live music played on two stages. The event wrapped up with the awarding of artists’ prizes in a ceremony at Spirit Square.
