Tifton- Dozens of vendors, demonstrators, and crafters began setting up this afternoon for Tifton's annual Love Affair fine Arts Festival.
The weekend-long event will feature everything from music to oil painting. Local artists say the festival is one of the best ways they've been able to showcase their work.
"People come from all over. People come from Florida, South Carolina, Tennessee, all over the place. They come to exhibit, and they also come to participate. It's really an affair that's looked forward to all year long," says watercolorist Marilyn Dale.
The love Affair will run until Sunday evening. The festival is being held at Fulwood Park in downtown Tifton.
