WATERLOO (KWWL) -

People in Waterloo are celebrating community but also remembering a man beaten to death earlier this month.  The 3rd Annual North End Arts and Music Festival is taking place this weekend outside Jubilee United Methodist Church in Waterloo.  They dedicated this year's festival to mMarcellus Andrews who died earlier this month.  Police are still looking for his attacker. Organizers say this event is about having a peaceful community and they celebrate with art and music. "We are the most diverse community in the state of Iowa right where we're standing, so that is something to celebrate," said organizer Cheryl Faries.
