Crowds braved the rains Saturday and Sunday, March 24 and 25 to attend this year’s San Juan Spring Arts and Crafts Festival in downtown San Juan Bautista.

The two-day event, held along Third Street, boasted more than 150 arts and craft exhibitors, a kids corner and live music for the public.

Despite the grey clouds and intermittently overcast skies, festival-goers were lively and entertained themselves with pony rides, garden decorations, arts and crafts, and an abundance of faire-time foods during the festival.
