The parking areas were particularly full at many of the Arts Off 84 Art Crawl stops Saturday, Sept. 4, marking this year's event as a massive success.

Artists ranged from those producing fiber art, photography, paintings and metal art, to a blacksmith performing demonstrations. Children had a chance at creating their own art at The Warehouse in Pine River.

Travis Grimler began work at the Echo Journal Jan. 2 of 2013 while the publication was still split in two as the Pine River Journal and Lake Country Echo. He is a full time reporter/photographer/videographer for the paper and operates primarily out of the northern stretch of the coverage area (Hackensack to Jenkins).
