From Sept. 16 through Sept. 18, thousands of people from across the region visited Town Center Park in the city of Grove City for the 43rd annual Arts in the Alley Music and Arts Festival. The popular event, which is sponsored by the Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce, featured more than 30 artisans throughout the state who set up booths for attendees to peruse their handcrafted wares and purchase a gift or two, or maybe more, for themselves and others. Among the featured artists making their debut at the festival was Galloway resident Scott Creed, seen here making minor spacing adjustments to his cedar wood creations. Creed said he started carving natural landscapes and making mirrors out of that type of wood about five years ago.
The Arts in the Alley Music and Arts Festival also hosted a community parade on Sept. 17. More than 50 marching bands, floats, and community groups – including several from the westside area – signed up to participate in the event. Here, the Franklin Heights High School marching band makes an appearance.

Human and canine representatives with the Norton Road Veterinary Hospital marched in the parade, some more literally than others.
