Downtown Live Committee to host 6th annual CAFE event

Apr. 12, 2013 @ 11:30 PM

HUNTINGTON -- The Huntington Regional Chamber of Commerce's Downtown Live Committee will host its 6th Annual Children's Art Festival Extravaganza (CAFÉ) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 20. The free event will take place at Heritage Station at the corner of 11th Street and Veterans Memorial Boulevard downtown.

Ten art stations with the theme "Picture Stories" will be set up, allowing children ages 3 to 12 to create their own artwork to take home. Hat making, creating a flip book and clay modeling are some of the stations that will be provided by the Marshall University School of Fine Art and Design and the Huntington Museum of Art. Cookie decorating taught by the Goodwill Industries Culinary class is planned as well.

The Downtown Live Committee is part of the Huntington Regional Chamber of Commerce. The committee's purpose is to plan and execute events downtown that will create retail and restaurant traffic for area businesses.
