Several shops will host artists, including: Lisa Pruitt, a henna artist, at CommonGround; Joey Stepp, a magician and balloon artist, at Brand Yourself; Karen Irwin, a jeweler, at the Greater Huntington Parks and Recreation District office; and Sarah Taylor and Denise Erwin of the Huntington Calligraphers’ Guild at The Red Caboose.

The event will serve as the official kickoff to the Rails & Ales Festival Craft Beer Week. Mayor Steve Williams will make a special announcement about the upcoming festivities.
