Arts and crafts shoppers always like to be the first at a sale so I will let you know the festival starts at nine this Saturday morning at the Iowa Community Center. You see everything from basket weaving to vase creation to a real blacksmith and shop creations from locals.  Live music will be provided by Cloud Nine. The kids will love balloons made by clowns and pony rides. This is a great event for the entire family!
