“I like to compare it to Northern Exposure meets Mayberry.”

That’s how singer Billy Hill describes Midway, Ky. It may be a small town, but people from across the globe are drawn to the restaurants and antique stores lining Main Street.

There’s another reason people go to Midway: Francisco’s Farm Arts Festival. It's a juried art event and takes place annually at Midway College. There’s also live music throughout the festival. This year's festival will take place June 21-22.

At a recent fund-raising event in Midway for Francisco's Farm, people were able to see what it's all about. There was live music, a silent auction and an intermission show. Here's a report.
