Young at Heart Artwork

MACHESNEY PARK (WIFR) – If this warm weather has you feeling young at heart, you’re in luck. The summer festival is fast approaching.

Today organizers announced Harlem High School student Brianna Barnes as the 2013 winner of their annual button contest. Dozens of Harlem Art students submitted entries for the chance to have their designs featured on buttons which will be used for entrance into the four-day festival.

"I really just looked at what the Young at Heart Festival is all about so the heart obviously, the music. It is a music festival so you kind of have to incorporate that mainly into it and the fireworks of course. So I just kind of put that all together along with the colors that kind of represented it,” said Barnes.

You can buy your buttons beginning May 1st for six dollars in advance or eight dollars at the gate.
