CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -

Saturday, Dec. 9, a family friendly event is happening in downtown Charlottesville that'll allow you to get in the holiday spirit and enjoy art.

The event called "Holiday Art Crawl" will allow you to create art, meet local artist and enjoy classic holiday films. Organizers are making the event fun by allowing you to pick up passports at each participating location to redeem a special treat of hot chocolate after visiting two stops.

“We have just such a rich community of artist and arts organizations here in town … so this is just a great day where we get to encourage each other about the wonderful work we're doing all the time … and just sort of show people a little bit of it,” Brooks Wellmon of Light House Studio said.

Events will start around 10 a.m. and last until 10 p.m.
