Hundreds of people came out to the very first Arts Alive Festival in Downtown Fresno Saturday.

The free event showcased art made locally and allowed kids to participate in different types of creativity, from collage and puppet making, to tie-dying.

Visitors could meet with the artists and enjoy local bands and entertainment while strolling down Fulton Mall and Courthouse Park.The day kicked off with a fun run this morning with people jogging in full costume.

Proceeds raised from that run are going to local art organizations.
