Art Walk was held in downtown Abilene tonight in addition with the Children's Art and Literacy Festival.

The Children's Festival featured author William Joyce and held a parade full of characters created by the esteemed author. But as soon as the parade ended, the storm moved into downtown.

Hail hit the downtown area hard, damaging windows, businesses, and car windows shattered.

Many cars were damaged and people that were devastated to see the damage their cars endured.

After the storm, people cleaned up the mess and were calling insurance companies. Many people were surprised by the amount of damage and had never seen a hail storm like this before.
