Superior, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Two Superior based non-profits are bringing people together to celebrate the cities peak of community flower and vegetable gardens.

The North Central Windows Program and The Superior Council for the Arts are hosting the first annual Harvest and Community Arts and Music Festival.

A concert put on by local artists began at noon Saturday in the Broadway Community Gardens.

Community leaders are teaching short karate, belly dancing, gardening and fire safety classes.

Local vendors are displaying art, crafts and outdoor furniture.

Event organizers say the festival is a way to bring unity to the community.

"We just wanted to represent Superior and show that there is a lot of good things over here that happen too," Kym Young said. "We've got good music, we've got good food, we've got a good strong local economy which we want to support and grow."

Both non-profits are located in the historic former Police building on the corner of Hammond and Broadway in Superior.
