Hundreds of people are expected to come out to the the Sisters Fall Street Festival this weekend, on Saturday and Sunday.
 
Organizer Richard Esterman says so far the fire is not impacting Sisters much - local roads are open and the smoke has been clearing out of the area by mid-morning.
 
He says the event is also an important local fundraiser.
 
"one thing important about this is i put on auctions and raise money for charities - and 100 percent of those funds go to that organization- and in this case its the sisters h.s. art department- they'll be a special booth there- a silent auction and the items come from the artists and 100 percent of that money goes to the art department so we can keep creativity going in the schools."
 
 Some of the art featured includes wood working, soap making, fused glass, pottery, photography, dog clothes, and even blacksmithing.
 
The Sisters Fall Street Festival runs from 10 to 5 on Saturday and on Sunday from 10 to 4.
 
"BLACKSMITHING IN TODAY'S DATE??  BUT HE'S REALLY DOING IT - IN THE LAST SHOW SOMEONE ASKED HIM TO MAKE A WINE CORKER - HE DID IT- IT TOOK HIM ABOUT 5 HOURS - -BUT ITS AN ART- ITS AN ART - AND THAT'S ONE THING THAT TODAY WITH ALL THE COMPUTERS WE LOSE THE CREATIVITY - AND SO ITS AN ART- THAT'S WHAT'S GOOD ABOUT THESE EVENTS. 
 
Esterman was a guest Thursday morning on 1110 KBND's Your Town.  To listen to the full interview you can go to the Your Town podcast on this website.  This is the 5th year of the Art Festival.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
