A hardy group of art enthusiasts participated in the almost two-hour guided walk Friday afternoon to kick off the 2011 Art Walk and Sale with interpreter Mary Forbes (right).

They started at Lake City Ford and visited 16 of the 35 businesses participating in the art walk this year which runs from Aug. 5 to Sept. 9 and features displays of work produced by 35 local artists.

Miss Canada International Anna Dell (centre) joined the walk, along with Mayor Kerry Cook, and Station House Gallery Society president Bev Pemberton who helped Forbes out by taking turns reading the artist profiles.
