At the Midtown Arts Festival on Saturday, Oct. 20, ballerines pirouetted, a woman in Brazilian Carnaval dress danced the samba, a group of students popped and locked to a hip-hop beat and a women in an Indian sari moved gracefully across the stage.
And that's a sample of the dance groups that performed - there was lots of local music - from a Rage Against the Machine cover band to a classical quartet, as well as booths with local artists, galleries, theater companies and more.
Throughout the afternoon, a constant flow of people moved through 20th Street in Midtown, where the festival took place. Liz Studebaker, executive director of the Midtown Business Association, which organized the event, estimated that somewhere around 4,000 people had attended.
"It's a fantastic representation of the local arts scene and the talented, creative people that we have in Sacramento," she said.
Zara Hayes, who coordinated the performance stage, said that the wide range of groups who performed illustrated the diversity of Sacramento, and that she was proud to have been a part of it.
"I love educating this town on the arts and bringing everyone together to support one another," she said.
