Damon Thomas, 18, of Henry Ford Academy, School for Creative Studies in the New Center area, was among the teen artists. 

The Palmer Park Art Fair in northwest Detroit couldn't have been held in better weekend weather. Temperatures were perfect, the sun was shining.

On top of that, the crowd was laid back. Food was cooking.  And there was an abundance of smiles.

This year's fair included a group of teen artists and their works. Pretty impressive works.

On Sunday, we snapped some photos and taped a video. 

Kids got to play instruments.

Some food trucks offered up grub including a vegetarian truck with veggie hot dogs and a barbecue truck.

Photographer James C. Ritchie has put together a cool collection of Detroit photos.

What's a Palmer Park Art Fair without a glass blower?

A little toe painting going on.

Eleanor Olson, 17, was one of the teen artists displaying her works at the fair. She's a junior at Community High School in Ann Arbor.

Music rang out along the water, near the food trucks.

Artist Donald Calloway Jr. displays his art work. In the background you can see the little stand for mini donuts. Who couldn't use some extra cholesterol?
