The 16th Annual Oro Valley Fall Arts in the Park, a music and fine art festival, is taking place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Oro Valley Marketplace, on the southwest corner of Oracle and Tangerine roads.

The free, outdoor festival occurs twice a year. It features holiday shopping ideas and entertainment for all ages.

Oro Valley Arts in the Park offers musical performances, kids' activities, tasty food and artwork. The public can view pastels, oil paintings, watercolors, sculpture, mixed-media, photography, ceramics, jewelry and more.

Attendees can sip on treats like smoothies, peppermint stick lemons and oranges or bite into brats and pretzel dogs, while listening to upbeat music, such as live bluegrass, jazz and acoustic guitar music.

Children can participate in the festival through watching arts and crafts demonstrations, getting their face painted and playing on inflatable jump lands.
