Sunday was a very special day, North State honored the women who truly sacrifice all for their babies. Families gathered for the annual Mother’s Day artisan festival at Caldwell Park in Redding.

There were arts, crafts, Mom Mosas and plenty of unique gifts. Local artisans showed off their creations, ranging from handmade dinner bells to wooden bears carved with a chain saw.

People said it was a perfect way to celebrate mother's day while supporting local artists.

“We know this one's here on Mother's Day because on Mother's Day we're always looking for somewhere to go to hang out, do something fun together with,” said Gina Carrel, an art show attendee. “If you give back to your community you're going to produce more in your community. You know if you spend your money here on locals.”

“I like it because I see everybody get to treat their mom special and they get them special little pieces that mean a lot to them,” said Claudia Caldarola, an artist in the festival.

This is the second year the festival was put on by local's gallery as a way to keep local art flourishing.
