We are on for Saturday! Fingers crossed we won't have any rain. See you at Ralph Park!!
"Arts and Sparks in the Park" combines a unique live-action Welding Rodeo and a Fine Arts and Crafts Fair. Presented by Loeb-Lorman Metals and the Fort Atkinson Arts Council, Arts and Sparks in the Park's fabulous activities offer visitors many opportunities enjoy creativity in many forms. Visitors watch as 8 teams compete to create a sculpture from scrap metal in 8 hours in the Welding Rodeo. While the welders create, other artists will have unique art for sale at their booths. There will be food and beverage available by the Lions Club as well as other arts related activities. At the end of the Welding Rodeo competition, visitors will be able to bid for the sculptures in a Silent Auction and take their sculptures home that night.
