Superior, WI (NNCNOW.com) - Non–profits always face the challenge of raising funds for their programs, so why not put a little fun in that fundraising?

That's the idea behind the annual Lammas First Harvest Arts and Music Festival, which kicked off at noon in the Billing's Park neighborhood of Superior Saturday.

The North Central Windows Program hosted the event, which featured song, dancing, face painting, and other family friendly activities.

Director Susan Meyers says the NCWP aims to reach survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault through art enrichment.

"This is our third year doing this, and it's important to come out and support it, because all the proceeds come to NCWP, and support our programs and the community," said Meyers as a zumba class kept people moving behind her.

This is the NCWP's second fundraiser of the year, including the Valentines Dinner in February.
