Raindrops, raincoats and umbrellas. Despite all that, crowds still flocked to the 13th annual Buffalo Grove Art Festival, which hosts more than 160 juried artists from around the globe.
Located on the main drive of Buffalo Grove Town Center, the popular festival offered fine art of all media.
The festival, which runs through the weekend, offers art enthusiasts an opportunity to watch art demonstrations and chat with the artists.
Matthew Scherer, 10, of Arlington Heights liked the art show. "It's really good," he said while chowing down on nachos and watching Nick Galatte of Monee shape a piece of glass into a work of art.
Matthew said he bought three photographs of sharks for his bedroom.
Linda Rosen, arts commission chairwoman, said, "Despite the rain, people seem to be enjoying the festival."
