Music, art and dancing will fill the streets of Langston on Saturday for the city's second Arts and Blues Festival.

Visitors will be able to see a stomp show presented by Langston students, a live blues band and art displays from local and regional artists.

The event will benefit Coyle Public Schools, whose students will bring goods to sell.

Coyle Superintendent Josh Sumrall said students will bring food items and crafts to sell, and all proceeds will go toward class funds for items such as field trips and supplies.

Charlene Meeks, chief executive officer of the Langston Chamber of Commerce, said the chamber also will have vendors selling food and other goods.

Meeks said the festival attracted more than 400 people last year, and she is hoping for 1,000 this year.

In addition to the Langston stomp show, Meeks said, high school students from Oklahoma City will demonstrate their stomp skills.

Festival art will come from artists from Oklahoma and surrounding states, most of whom attended Stillwater's art festival last weekend. Meeks said the best-reviewed artist will win $100.

All the entertainment is free, and the festival will run from 2 to 6 p.m.
