PEORIA HEIGHTS - A new festival made Peoria Heights' Tower Park busy this weekend.

The village hosted its first ever "Tower Park Art Festival".

It is a combination of two former events - Chalk the Walk and the Arts Fair.

The festival included vendors, music, chalk artists, and face painting by the Zoo Lady.

Sarah Witracht from the Village of Peoria Heights said, "If people come and see two different events, it is kind of nice to come out and see it as one big event. You have the best of both worlds."

The village hopes to continue to hold one bigger festival next year, too.
