Kids eager to get their hands dirty gathered in the paseo near the Gilroy Library for its Kids Discover Arts event on Saturday, Aug. 25.

The event was well-attended and offered a variety of projects, including chalk designs, paper making, drawing, watercolor painting and other creative activities led by local artists.

A vibrant display of entertainment was provided by Folklorico México en la Piel, a large children’s folkloric dance group from Hollister.

The dance troupe provided an excellent program and wowed the crowd with their colorful dance artistry.
