Attendees of the Artesia Arts Council’s 45th Annual Art in the Park event stroll through Central Park Saturday, perusing the wares at a wide variety of booths. Artisans and crafters from throughout the region made their labors of love available for purchase at the event, which also featured food booths, games, and the Artesia Public Schools band program’s annual Cake Walk fundraiser.
