    Downtown Dallas was alive with the sound of music on Saturday.

    People headed out to Main Street Garden Park to check out three colorful pianos.

    The pianos were painted by Leigha Lugo for a project called "Play On, Dallas!"

    Lugo, along with the city's Office of Cultural Affairs, decided that each of the pianos would be placed in different spots around the city, including Pegasus Park, the Dallas Farmers Market, and Dallas Love Field Airport.

    A 4-year-old girl was left alone inside a minivan overnight in a Milwaukee tow lot, authorities said. An impaired driver was pulled over and arrested for operating while intoxicated. Officers removed a 10-month-old child from the vehicle but left the 4-year-old girl, who spent the night in the tow lot where temperatures dropped to 19 degrees.
