LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)- Columbian Park was a little more colorful than usual Tuesday night, and there was even some salsa dancing.

It was latin night at 'Art in the Park,' which was hosted by Lafayette Parks and Recreation.

Visitors danced to the latin fusion band, and many local artists showcased their traditional and unique pieces. 

Kelsey Bates frequently attends 'Art in the Park' and said her handmade jewelry line is a way to honor her late mother.

But it does more than just that.

"Ten percent of each purchase a person makes helps to go to orphans in Myanmar," Bates said. "And I figure this would be a good way I can give back."

The last 'Art in the Park' of the summer is scheduled for August seventh at Armstrong Park.
