Greensboro hosted its annual art and music festival for the 14th year on Saturday, Aug. 31 at the Ice Plant Pavilion.

As with previous years, Art Blast on the Mon offered food, vendors, live music and activities to guests for all ages with no admission cost.

The one-day festival ran from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., according to the Nathaniel Greene Community Development Corporation, which is a nonprofit based in Greensboro.

The corporation “works with regional groups to cultivate the community’s preservation of history and culture,” its website states. “(It) supports the idea that many rural communities have the ability to become self-sustaining in the ‘new economy’ presented by the internet. Through this medium many individual, organizations and businesses can exchange ideas, services and even products without forsaking the quality of life rural America offers.”
