ROYAL OAK, Mich. – An annual event is back in Royal Oak for another year of unique art-making.

Parking is available at a new parking deck two blocks north of the show.
Director of the event, Mark Loeb, said the new name, "Art of Fire," is "an indicator of the exciting new experience fair-goers will have this year.
