Downtown Hays came alive Friday night during the annual Spring Gallery Walk presented by the Hays Arts Council.
Twenty-seven entities opened their doors to the huge crowd which strolled along Main Street and throughout the Chestnut Street District.
Many locations offered extended Saturday hours for the Gallery Walk.
HAC featured the popular Smoky Hill Art Exhibition, in its 44th year. The state-wide fine art competition was juried by Stephen Gleissner, Chief Curator at the Wichita Museum of Art. The exhibit remains open through June 6.
