Artists are wanted for the Kirkwood Spring Fling.

The Spring Fling and Tour of Homes is scheduled for Saturday, May 14 at Bessie Branham Park. Applications for booths at the artists’ market are now being accepted.

It costs $100 for a 10′ x 10′ booth, and returning artists get first dibs, according to a festival email. The deadline for artist applications is April 25, though the festival is encouraging artists to sign up early since some art categories may close before then.

The 2016 Spring Fling includes a 5K, live music, and a BBQ competition. There is also a kids area. Admission to the Spring Fling is free.

The weekend also includes the Kirkwood Tour of Homes on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets for that cost $20 and will be available for purchase in April, according to the website. Proceeds benefit the Kirkwood Neighbors’ Organization, a non-profit that focuses on community improvement.

Decaturish photographer Jonathan Phillips attended last year’s Kirkwood Spring Fling and captured these images from the day. Decaturish also attended the 2014 Spring Fling.
