“The Huffhines Art Trails Festival is a great place to spend some fun, quality family-time. That’s why Family First is involved with the event. We want to help introduce our audience to the festival and its artists and other participants. Also, last year’s WFAA talent really enjoyed being able to visit with people in and around Richardson,”
The Huffhines Art Trails Festival was created by the City of Richardson to provide local artists and craftsmen a venue to promote and sell their work. Today it is one of the premiere arts and crafts shows in North Texas. For more information, visit www.huffhinesarttrails.com or call 972-744-4580.
