The Park Avenue Festival has come and gone for another year.

The 2-day event brought thousands of visitors to the historic Park Avenue neighborhoods throughout the weekend. Some local business owners we spoke with say the event is a huge boost to their bottom line.

"For us the publicity is great," Park Avenue Paninoteca's Joe Joy said. "The foot traffic brings everyone in, and it's exciting."

Joy said his business has only been open 2 months, and he picked up plenty of new customers thanks to the festival weekend.
