For its tenth year, the Tomato Art Festival took over the streets of east Nashville on Saturday.
Thousands attended the Five Points neighborhood for fun activities and crafts until 10 p.m.
A kids run and 'Tomato 5K' kicked off the day at 7 a.m., followed by a New Orleans style parade for the crowds to enjoy.
The free event encouraged everyone to celebrate all things tomato, even costumes.
Food, music, exhibits, crafts and vendors were all available for participants. The Tomato Art Festival first began in the summer of 2004 when Art and Invention Gallery owners Meg and Bret MacFadyen hosted an art show to celebrate tomatoes.It quickly grew each year, with an estimated 35,000 coming out to celebrate in 2012.For more information visit the Tomato Art Festival Web site.
