HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

It wasn't quite fall-like weather Saturday night, but that didn't stops lots of Hattiesburg-area residents from venturing downtown to enjoy music, food and various types of art during the annual Fall Art Walk.

Rock and roll music filled the air as families strolled downtown streets to shop for pieces of art, take in an art show or participate in some art activities.

And nearby at the train depot, art lovers viewed several pieces of sculpture and met the artists during a reception for the 4th annual, All-Aboard Sculpture Exhibit, which runs through Oct. 27.
