Around a thousand people visited Windsor’s oldest manufacturing neighbourhood for the third annual Ford City arts and heritage festival on Saturday, according to organizers.

The neighbourhood came together along Drouillard Road to mix art with automotive history and celebrate community.

Resident groups including the Ford City BIA, Ford City Neighbourhood Renewal and the Ford City Residents In Action created a human foosball game, brought a marching band to the street, held live music, face painting, mural painting, and drew a crowd with street performers and a vendors market.
