Saturday was bustling along Mission’s Johnson Drive with the weekly Farmer’s Market, the Mission Art Walk, sidewalk sales and a grand opening celebration at Casey’s Auto Repair on the Drive.

Three dozen artists lined Johnson Drive for most of the day with a wide variety of styles and media – from watercolors to wooden bowls and everything in between. The Northeast Johnson County Chamber of Commerce sponsored the ribbon cutting for the latest location for Casey’s. Carl Casey told the crowd that Mission supports its business community.

The Art Walk is an annual event for downtown Mission. It featured music, dance and a kids area as well as the art.
