LAUREL HILL — Like spring flowers bursting into bloom, the grounds at Laurel Hill Presbyterian Church will sprout colorful tents and displays of local artists' creativity on Saturday.

The Laurel Hill Spring Arts Festival, beginning 11 a.m. on Saturday, will provide a venue for area visual and performing artists to display their God-given talents, said the church's pastor, the Rev. Mark Broadhead.

"Other art festivals charge artists to exhibit their work," he said. "We think it's a privilege that these talented people want to share their beautiful music and artwork with the community, and we're just happy to provide an opportunity for them to do so."

Music will fill the air as attendees admire paintings, photography, woodturning, handmade jewelry and ceramics.

The Emerald Coast Pipes and Drums corps from Fort Walton Beach will share the instrument’s stirring sound and its history.

Sax to the Max — a saxophone quartet led by Crestview High School student Nick Overton — and The Wesley Boys gospel quartet also will be among performers.

Nick's brother, acoustic guitarist and vocalist Aaron Overton, a Florida State University student, will croon classic rock, ballads and folk tunes.
