This rainy, dreary weather can ruin any motivation to do anything, can't it? Even if the sun isn't shining, there are a few things you can do around the area and around the house to keep your energy (and spirits) up.
Tuesday marks the opening day of the 2016 Arts Festival at Munson Williams in Utica. This year's Sidewalk Arts Show features more than 200 works, including paintings, drawings, sculptures and photography all done by local artists.
