A DeKalb arts celebration kicks off Friday night. It’s the second year for ARTigras.
Events begin with a “March To Bourbon Street” at the Egyptian Theatre in downtown DeKalb. It’s designed to emulate the New Orleans culture.
Dana Stover serves on the ARTigras planning committee. She says it’s an opportunity for people to celebrate fine arts.
“What stands out first is just the community spirit – that it brings together the school of NIU, the city of DeKalb, surrounding areas, Kishwaukee College. And it brings everyone together," Stover said.
