Oswego’s annual downtown arts festival returns this weekend.

Admission is free and all art that is on display is also for sale.
Several free children’s activities are planned, including the Oswegoland Optimist Club Chalk the Walk contest in which kids can draw pictures on the sidewalk outside the Old Fire Barn for prizes. Registration begins at 11 a.m. and judging begins at 2 p.m.
Students from The Fox River Academy of Music and Art also will be on hand to provide musical entertainment, and the academy also will host other children's activities throughout the day.
