The Park Avenue Festival has come and gone for another year, and it just missed tonight's rains.

The festival brought thousands of visitors to the Park Avenue neighborhoods through the weekend.  Local business owners say the event is a huge boost to their bottom line.

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

Joy says his business has only been open two months and he already has plenty of loyal customers thanks to the festival.
