One of the area's longest-running and most popular summertime events gets underway today.

The 2019 Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute Arts Festival runs through July 7th.

The festival features sidewalk art, live music, the Antique and Classic Car Show on Sunday and more.

The Sidewalk Art Show features over 200 works of art, all done by local artists.

Children can enjoy fun-filled activities, including exhibition-inspired crafts.

You can also watch as art is created under the weight of a four-ton road roller in the Big Ol’ Steamrollin’ Print Invitational.

Festival hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m daily.
