Lots of food, entertainment and handmade items were all part of the fun at this year’s Artisan’s Festival in Leetonia.

More than 100 vendors set up shop at Wick Park, one of the best turnouts in 20 years.

Spectators also enjoyed a classic car cruise and children’s activities. Some traveled from Pennsylvania and West Virginia to make it to the fall festival. Organizer Daniel Morelli said the festival has been held since 1982.

“We have done it every year to raise money for the parks and recreation board here in Leetonia,” said Morelli.

In some ways, the festival is sort of like a homecoming gathering for Leetonia, since there is no longer a street fair or fireman’s festival.
