WASHINGTON - It might be tough to find parking in downtown Bethesda but it's much easier to find a memorable piece of art at the 16th Annual Bethesda Row Arts Festival. It reopens Sunday morning at 10 a.m. and goes until 5 p.m. on Woodmont Avenue.

The festival comprises original art from a wide variety of artists in price ranges from $45 to over $60,000. And it attracts young families with thousands of locales taking it all in.

"We came here a few years ago when we bought a painting of a toilet for our bathroom. So we thought that was a great buy so we came back again," says Paula McGee, who came to he festival with her husband and their two children. The youngsters found something they also like.

"They have some 'spin art' for the kids, and the kids really enjoy doing that. And the money goes to NIH," McGee says.

The festival also features live entertainment.
