Fifth-graders sold drinks from a cooler on wheels dragged around the artists' tents while their friends on the baseball team displayed plates of barbecue.

The team raised nearly $500 selling barbecue plates, sandwiches and smoked Boston butts, according to coach Ronnie Smith.

A bake sale by the church's Presbyterian Women raised $80, which was divided between the two student groups.

Performing groups included Crestview High School students comprising the Sax to the Max quartet, which kicked off their performance of diverse music with Alfred Newman's iconic "20th Century-Fox Fanfare."

 An eclectic repertoire by Crestview acoustic guitarist Aaron Overton ranged from The Beatles and Cat Stevens, while Southern gospel harmonies by The Wesley Boys quartet rounded out the day's entertainment.

The Okaloosa Arts Alliance-North and the Friends of the Arts supported the event.
