The rain held off for visitors and vendors at the third Annual Alberta Fest Saturday, June 25. Local artists from around the area set up their booths along the sidewalk leading to the old school, and offered  everything from baked goods, tie-dyed clothing, musical instruments, jewelry, and cedar laser cut ornaments. Among the many venders and booths was Jim Leppala of ‘Jim-N-E’s Woodcrafts. He brought split maple baskets for sale. He even pulled out a template and showed a
customer just how he made it. To read more, subscribe to the L’Anse Sentinel online, or buy a print copy at our local retailers.
