WINTHROP — The 32nd Winthrop Sidewalk Arts Festival drew record crowds to the lakeside community. Sponsored by the Winthrop Lakes Region Chamber, the festival featured a variety of artists, crafters, live music and gourmet food.

Several other community events were also held, including Bailey Public Library children’s activities, a Winthrop Rotary barbecue, church luncheons, lawn sales and an “All-Pie Dinner.”

A van der Brew corn hole tournament sponsored by the Winthrop Plays Outside organization also garnered 17 teams and raised $340, which will be used to buy recreational equipment for the town.

The Norcross Point summer concert series concluded the day’s activities with a performance by local band Sons of Be’s.
