EAST PEORIA - Some of the area’s best painters, welders and wood carvers were in East Peoria this weekend.

The Levee District hosted the second annual Art on the Promenade Fine Art Fair.

Thirty five artists dazzled collectors with their original work. Most were from Central Illinois, while a few traveled from out of state to attend the event.

Organizers say the second year brought a boost in attendance.

"Local artists give so much of themselves to the art. And for people to come out and support them is so encouraging to them. Just for people to come out and view the art means a lot to them,” said event organizer Jennifer Lee.

The artists didn’t just bring out their work, but their family members as part of Father’s Day.

We caught up with some of them to find out how they’re celebrating with dear dad.
