YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — Residents of a historical neighborhood in Youngstown came together to celebrate their community.

The third annual Idora Fest was held on Saturday. Face painting, a cookie decorating competition and arts and crafts were all part of the fun.

INA president James London said the rain couldn’t stop the group from coming together.

“You have to come out and meet your neighbors. That is the only way you are going to make a community a community,” said London. “This is what we do here no matter if it’s raining, snowing it does not matter.”

Organizers are hoping to hold next year’s event at the Idora Park site.
