GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WZZM) -- Workers in Grand Haven are getting ready for that city's first ever ArtWalk

The event is a cash-prize competition like ArtPrize in Grand Rapids.

More than 150 artists are participating this year at nearly 100 sites in downtown Grand Haven and the rest of the city.

Organizers hope to attract some art enthusiasts from artprize, but also say they're happy to give Grand Haven residents a version of their own.

"A lot of times they travel to places the variety of formats the art can take, and here, we're bringing that to our downtown, to their hometown," says Dana Kollewehr of Grand Haven's Downtown Development Authority. 

ArtWalk starts Wednesday and runs through October 9. You can vote Monday through Friday starting at 10 a.m.
