CALEXICO — Hundreds of community members flocked to the Gran Plaza Outlets on Monday for the third annual Art & Fireworks on the Border event, which featured multiple artists and craftspeople selling their wares, as well as live entertainment, food and beverages.

The highlight of the night could’ve arguably been considered the fireworks display, but the diverse artists in attendance appeared to have equally delighted the crowd.
