LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Setup for the Saint James Court Art Show was well underway on Thursday.
The show hosts 750 artists from all over North America. It's held in the heart of Old Louisville, surrounded by all of the beautiful Victorian homes, and has run for over 50 years.
Artists stayed busy putting up their booths, while vendor put their food carts together. Illegally parked cars were towed out of the way.
The artists say they are excited for the show to begin, even though the weekend may see some showers. Many artists come year after year. Douglas Sigwarth, an artist from Wisconsin, says, "I love that it's kind of like the end of the season, a big festival. I love festivals in any community, where the people really look forward to it every single year."
"It's just like family coming to visit once a year," says Judith Parker, who lives on St. James Court. She will stroll among the artists each day of the show, but her dog will have to stay on the porch -- no pets are allowed. She says she enjoys watching the people.
The show runs Friday through Sunday. Friday and Saturday hours are from 10-6, Sunday 10-5.
