The Alternative Gallery/ The Cigar Factory presented: ART FEST 2016 held at Cedar Beach thrived despite the rain. The three day art festival featured some of the most talented artist. It was from September 30-October 2nd.  The crowd ventured out all three days and listened to music, drank and saw some incredible art. The artist got the crowd and the kids involved by setting up extra art supplies so the kids could paint with the artist. Brandon Wunder, Bernie Reinert and Jessica Echevarria of The Alternative Gallery worked hard along with volunteers to set everything up for the three day event.
