"The weather - it's perfect here,' said Joanne Adams of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., who was selling her Just For You handmade jewelry at the show for the third straight year. "And I love Michigan. I think it's a wonderful state.' The 50th anniversary of the festival, organized by the local Chamber of Commerce and Howard Alan Events Ltd., continues Sunday.

"Tomorrow we are having a special event, 'Celebration of the Arts' — which started as a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Grand Haven Art Festival, but has grown to become a celebration of all the arts in our community of Northwest Ottawa County," said Courtney Olsen, program and events support coordinator for the Chamber of Commerce Grand Haven-Spring Lake-Ferrysburg. "It will start at 1 p.m. down on the decks next to Snug Harbor. Following the short program, there will be ice cream sundaes provided by the Chamber and Sweet Temptations, and appetizers from Snug Harbor while supplies last. Sidewalk chalk will be provided for those who feel artsy to take a stab at decorating a sidewalk square"
