As the 2013 Arts, Beats & Eats kicked off Aug. 30, it was clear that visitors would have much more than food, music and galleries of paintings, photographs and sculptures to occupy their time.

On the south end of the festival, staff members from the Michigan Science Center were educating children on the basics of engineering. Near one of the entrances, an instructor was teaching two-dozen people yoga. And despite the warm temperatures, kids were enjoying carnival rides.

 Arts, Beats & Eats draws a good crowd early on Aug. 30. The festival runs through Labor Day.
