13th edition of ArtsPark celebrates local arts and culture

By Andrea Stokes – 

On Saturday, May 28, the Hintonburg Arts Committee (a sub-committee of the Hintonburg Community Association) hosted its 13th annual celebration of local art, music, craft, and food at Parkdale Park. It was a beautiful, sunny day with a jam-packed schedule full of art and fun activities for everyone to enjoy.
