A big change in the Erie Arts Festival this year.
It kicked off Thursday night, at the Bayfront Convention Center.
That's the big change.
This year, they're taking it indoors.
It was usually held in Liberty Park.
They're also making it more of a local show with local artists.
It runs through Sunday.
"We have more crafters than we've ever had, we have over 70 inside. It's air conditioned and the artists have brought in some of their special pieces," said organizer, Matta Deckard.
