Martin said each participant will go home with a unique piece of art.
For those more interested in the food, LaBrie said, the festival will offer regional food vendors including Big Truck Tacos and Dip n' Dots. Norman's Fat and Sassy Mama, Caryn Ross, will sell doughnut balls. Ross is a winner of the Paula Deen and Kraft Foods Real Women of Philadelphia contest and has appeared on Rachael Ray's show.
The festival also will feature the May Fair Student Art Show. First-place artists in each grade level, kindergarten through eighth grade, will receive $50 savings bonds from First Bank and Trust Co. Second place artists will receive student art scholarships from the Firehouse Art Center.
The May Fair Arts Festival benefits the Assistance League of Norman's philanthropic projects, including Operation School Bell, which provides shoes, clothing and books to nearly 1,200 needy children in the Norman and Little Axe school districts.
