Now here is a great festival to not only help out you and the kids but also the community at large. The "Art of Peace Community Festival" is happening this Saturday Aug 17th from 3 PM - 6 PM at CP Federal Square in downtown Jackson.

The festival, which is for children and people of all ages, will feature guest speakers, food, education and counseling. One of the biggest things though is that it will help with professional support whether that means if you are looking for a job, an adviser, or a counselor. According to MLive, the people putting on the festival hope that this can be something that is done more to help the community and also to help curb violence in the city. You can also see the Facebook post below for more on it.
