Local art enthusiasts were in for a special treat Saturday.

It was the Fifth Annual Festival of Arts in Paso Robles.

The event was held at Paso Robles City Park.

There were several new features this year, including a new bar and lounge area, featured artists, and a sustainable landscaping exhibit.

"This is like no other art festival around, since it celebrates the environment, it celebrates the artists, and it celebrates kids, and it's all free," said Barbara Partridge, the event chair.

The event was free to attend, but guests could also purchase art, souvenirs, and food.

A portion of the proceeds benefit the Festival, Studios on the Park, and the Salinas River Corridor Project.
