Celebrate the arts with your family at Westgate Park

Families can celebrate the arts Sept. 14 at Westgate Park, 455 S. Westgate Ave. The Arts in the Park neighborhood festival includes art exhibit and sales, children's activities, food trucks and craft vendors.

For the first time ever, the event will include slam poetry. Attendees also can view the park's new mural of 200 children playing in the park. The mural, painted during last year's event, was created as part of Columbus' bicentennial celebration.

The free event runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
