The annual art on the river event presented by the Arts Association in Newton County is taking things up a notch this year with a Kentucky Derby theme.
The event will be held 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on May 7 in Porterdale.
You can bring a picnic and spread out on the banks of the Yellow River by the Porterdale lofts, then take a stroll through the exhibit of art from the Southern Heartland Art Guild, Margaret Warfield and Susan Adams.
Later, you can dance under the moonlight with music from a live band.
