The 57th annual Poke Sallet festival is underway in Harlan with plenty of things to get involved in.

From Native American flutes to handmade jewelry to replicas of coal camp, there is a little something for everyone.

One man makes each instrument by hand spending more than 20 hours on each one, making sure to share a little native American history with the city of Harlan.

Across the room another vendor also creates his specialty out of wood using a razor thin blade.

A type of artwork he says keeps him busy since each one takes about 3 days to complete.

So even when the weather is not as nice as it could be there is still a lot for festival goers to do and see.

The festival runs through Saturday.
