The Firefly Art Festival opens Friday in Kingston
KINGSTON, Okla. (KTEN) — Artists from around the Texoma area and even some other states will be in Kingston this weekend, showcasing handcrafted art at the Firefly Art Festival that starts Friday morning.
“You get to be inspired by them and see what they do, and you leave here excited to go create,” said event coordinator Kasey Davis.
While checking out the nearly 80 vendors, you can also catch live music, grab a bite to eat at the food truck alley, pick a pumpkin to take home, and see live demos.
“There are so many unique creations," Davis said. "We have glass-blowers, chain saw artists and people who will paint live. We have a lot of live demos, and I look forward to that every year."
Vendor Amy Bell said she's excited to have an opportunity to showcase her creations.
“I'm usually out doing this with our Farm Stuff jams and bread and produce, but it's really nice to get out with my art,” Bell said.
Event organizers say the festival is a way to bring Texomans together for some fun while supporting local artists and vendors.
“We did this to really bridge the gap between Denison-Durant area and Ardmore in this royal backyard and bring arts here, so I'm really stoked about it. It's going to be great,” Davis said.
LaJeanne's Plants ‘N Things is hosting this year’s Firefly Art Festival. Gates will be open Friday through Sunday from 9 am. to 5 p.m. at 6909 Enos Road in Kingston.
