Local Arts Event News:
There was another festival in Magna last week. Designed for those who like Halloween and horror-based entertainment, Art On You Studios hosted their annual Halloween in Summer festival on Magna Main Street on Saturday, Jult 19th. This year’s event represented a huge leap in size and variety, with multiple stages, lectures, street vendors, etc. Friday night had a free screening of the classic horror movie “Dracula”, with many more events to observe and participate in throughout the day on Saturday.

The biggest single event on the local arts calendar is the annual Magna Main Street Arts Festival coming up on Saturday, August 23rd. As always, it is free to attend and enjoy the wide-ranging concerts and art displays.
