    ArtWalk is a lively outdoor fine art event that happens each year in San Diego's Little Italy community.

    Little Italy will be covered in color and art this weekend as the 31st Annual Mission Federal ArtWalk hits the streets.

    The popular, free outdoor arts festival is happening both Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., with more than 120,000 people expected to enjoy the art vendors, live music and interactive, art-focused activities.

    ArtWalk spokesperson Angie Lasagna said the street fest will span 17 blocks between Ash and Grape streets with more than 350 booths for attendees to peruse. Many of those artist booths will line India Street. A special KidsWalk area will keep the little ones entertained with 13 interactive booths.

    Organizers say the ArtWalk activities will help support the mission of ArtReach San Diego, the non-profit organization that takes art workshops into San Diego County schools, offering free programming to schools with no resources for art education.
