OKLAHOMA CITY – Preparations are already underway for this year’s Festival of the Arts.

Some of the tents in the food court have already been set up downtown.

Over the weekend, organizers got a little help from students at OU.

It was all part of the university’s volunteer day called “The Big Event.”

This year’s Festival of the Arts is scheduled for April 22 through April 27 on Hudson Ave. between Reno and Sheridan and at the Myriad Botanical Gardens.

Organizers say the entire setup takes about four weeks.
