LANSING, MI (WILX) - It was the perfect day for festivals in mid-Michigan on Saturday.

The 2019 Holt Fest has expanded. It was held Saturday, August 17, 2019.

The Holtfest started with a parade on Saturday morning.

This year there was fun for all ages at two locations in town, the farmers' market and the Veterans Memorial Gardens.

Live music was also offered at both locations, along with food and games.

The News 10 Team even had its own tent.

There they gave out prizes, if and when you spun the WILX Wheel.

Also happening on Saturday, ArtFeast in Lansing's Old Town.

This free festival is quickly becoming a destination for emerging artists and welcomes thousands of attendees.

Nearly 100 artists lined Turner Street in the heart of Old Town for this year's festival.

The artists offered abstract art, handmade and hand-designed jewelry, woodwork, illustrations, metal art and books.

Said Brooke Peiffer, owner of Re-seeds Ceramics, "ArtFeast has really grown I was really surprised when I got here today. This is my fourth year doing it and I think its been the busiest I've ever seen it. So, it must be a great meeting place for a lot people and something to do in Lansing."

For this year's festival, there are some road.

This includes closures on Turner Street between Cesar Chavez Avenue and East North Street.

These closures will be re-opened by mid-afternoon Sunday.
