Art Festival (Continued from Page 7) to the delight of the audience. Successful almost since its inception, the Festival of Arts has been witnessed by more than two million spectators. The success of the production, particularly in a small community 60 miles removed from any large metropolitan area, and w i t h 7,000 permanent residents, centers on the intense community spirit and participation.
