Thousands of people from all over the country are in or headed to the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts in State College. Around 300 booths are set up, selling everything from handmade baskets, hand-painted glass, pottery,to jewelery.

Joyce Robinson, the festivals board of directors president, said they're anticipating a lot of people coming into town.

"I think our numbers are something like 125,000 visitors," she said. "They're not all here at the same time. Plenty of room for more to come. It's incredibly festive environment. Of course, Thursday and Friday, we build to the crowds on Saturday and Sunday."

The festival will wrap up Sunday at 5 p.m.
