Art in the Park is the major fundraiser of the year for the Alexandria Area Arts Association. Proceeds are used to maintain and improve the AAAA Theatre. The fine arts and crafts show has grown from about 15 vendors back in 1976 to about 180. The event was originally held at Legion Park, but now takes place along the tree-shaded shores of Lake Agnes and Lake Henry in City Park.
