Paradise City Arts Festival continues in Northampton

Posted: Updated:
NORTHAMPTON, MA (WSHM) -

One of the largest arts festivals in Massachusetts is taking place this holiday weekend.

The Paradise City Arts Festival is a three-day long event with both indoor and outdoor exhibits, all of which are for sale.

You can purchase everything from a giant giraffe for your yard to things such as clocks and jewelry.

Organizers told CBS 3 that the festival is one of the top 10 ranked arts festivals in the United States, with about 15,000 people attending each year.

"It takes a lot of vision, a lot of creativity," said Linda Post, founding director of the festival. "You have to be able to imagine what it is people are looking for when they come to an event like this. Are they looking to spend money and how much are they looking to spend? Are they looking for indoor things, outdoor things, clothing, fashion, furniture? We have everything for everyone."

Monday is the last day of the art festival.

It will run from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Three County Fairgrounds.
