Despite tropical storm warnings, art lovers flocked to the 8th Annual Hilton Head Island Art Festival on Saturday and Sunday. The event was held at the Shelter Cove Harbor and Marina and included live music, lots of food options and all kinds of art for sale. Vendors and visitors alike look forward to the event every year. The harbor was busy under the watchful eye of the 12 foot tall King Neptune statue as children played and attendees bustled to avoid the rain.
