AUSTIN, Minn. — A triathlon of different sorts put folks in Austin to the test.

All ages  took part in the second annual Fourth Avenue Arts Triathlon today.

It is designed to expose folks to the different arts in the community.

Whether it is poetry, performance or art work, organizers say it’s important to open everyone’s mind and imagination.

“It is something important to open their minds to all they can do out there in the world of arts and things they can have fun with,” Hormel Historic Home Executive Director Holly Johnson said. “They can just be free and create their own imagination.”

It’s a preview of sorts with the Artworks Festival set to kick off in town this weekend.

Johnson says she hopes it helps instill an appreciation for the arts throughout their lives.
