|Elyna Grapstein, far left, Kevin Carr, center, and Matt Smith, right, help local children create harmonicas and tambourines at Blues in the Bay Festival on Saturday in Alexandria Bay, N.Y.|
The local non-profit, based out of Better Farm in Redwood, received funding from Watertown Evening Rotary to provide children with free arts supplies and instruction to create tambourines and harmonicas out of popsicle sticks, rubber bands, paper plates, and bells.
Children also had the opportunity to decorate the musical instruments with paint and crayons. The event was put on in conjunction with Alexandria Bay's Blues in the Bay music festival. Here are some photographs from the afternoon:
