NORTH KINGSTOWN - The heat didn’t deter everyone from visiting the Wickford Art Festival last weekend. However, long-time participants of the 50-year old festival noted that there were fewer people and sales than in years past.
“The heat is just killing the show,” said Jim Murphy, a 20-year veteran of the festival.
Jeanne Pierce, who was showing at the festival for the third time, said she only sold one piece on Saturday.
Pierce, like many artists, blamed the heat for reducing foot-traffic near their booths.
