Happening this weekend, lots of people and their pets headed to River Street to enjoy the Unity in the Community event.

The free family friendly event is all about man's best friend this weekend. Each month artists and artisans from around the area come to sell their homemade items. There are also live performances all weekend.

Vendors say it's important for the community to participate in events like these - which highlight the local small businesses. 

"I think it's really super important to support local artisans and artists because we made these things ourselves and all of the money will go back into the community, versus all over the United States," said Dawn Kirthinger, Owner, Munchies by Moe Joe.

Unity in the Community is held on River Street every third weekend of the month. The event continues Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
