Dozens of local artists and students had the chance to display their work and talent Saturday at the second annual Sweet Owen Arts in the Park celebration.

Over 660 visitors got to experience a wide variety of art and music during the day-long affair.

There were also many different types of handmade arts and crafts, ranging from pottery, basket weaving, glass blowing to hand-painted signs.

The event also featured plenty of local musical talent with a special youth talent show and performances from professional groups including No Tools Loaned, Kentucky Wild Horse and Downtown County Band.

The Owen County Historical Society also helped young people understand their heritage with live storytelling.
