Moms enjoy a day at Mayfest

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ)- Hundreds of people soaked up some sun in front of Transylvania University at this year’s annual Mayfest Arts Fair.

“It’s just fun and you know the food, just everything about it. All the artists. Yeah it’s a lot of fun,” said Erin Hooper of Lexington.

In addition to checking out all the local arts, crafts and food many people were out here celebrating the mother’s day holiday.

“Yes my mom lives here in Lexington so I came down for the day and yesterday and we stopped for kettle corn,” said Givana Smith of Louisville.

“We all usually meet out here pretty much every year as long as it’s weather’s good you know not raining. Yeah we all, my sister’s in law, mother in law, father in law, brother in law, everybody,” said Hooper.

The fair is held over mother’s day weekend every year, something vendors say makes it even more enjoyable.

“It’s very well known in the community. People seem to come here for generations. You know they bring their children here. Their parents brought them. So it’s really a well established event,” said Jane Tatum, a vendor.
