OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) -
The 34th Annual Peter Anderson Festival kicked off Saturday in Ocean Springs attracting thousands of people. Hundreds of vendors set up shop displaying one of a kind talent.
Thousands of people made their way up Washington Avenue taking a journey through a one of a kind festival that attracts people from hundreds of miles away, who are all in search of extraordinary items.
One vendor said, "This is a picture of Chandelier Island. He does a lot of wade fishing out there for speckled trout and what not, yeah it's fantastic."
Don Parham said, "I'm from San Antonio, Texas. We had to drive 650 miles to get here."
Artists brought their rare art, pottery and wood work to sale to people like Don Parham who said this festival beats any he has ever seen.
Parham added, "I think its fantastic. I think it's beautiful. I've never seen so many people. Where they all come from is beyond me."
The thousands of people are able to get up close and personal with local artwork like these paintings done by Ocean Springs native Craig Brumfield.
Jake Tracht said, "This is a new style he hasn't done in a while where you lay the ink down over the fish and you press it over."
Jake Tracht runs Brumfield's booth he said the Peter Anderson Festival is great exposure for all of the artists.
Tracht added, "Bringing this many people to an area this size, it's a mass influx of money. In this short time frame of two days I would say millions of dollars are being spent. Between parking and gasoline being sold. It's very beneficial."
Parham said, "Oh, its beautiful! People are having a lot of fun, spending a lot of money. The food is great, I had a big hot sausage, it was out of this world."
The Peter Anderson Festival wraps up Sunday at 4pm.
