One of those artists was Geraldo De-Souza from Syracuse, New York, who deisgns custom bow-ties.

“This is more of a tie for a guy who is ballroom dancing, the guy all around town,” he said.

Cecelia Garcia, from San Diego, was selling her husbands paintings:

“This is our way to knock in doors, and show the work and make it available,” she said

The two-day festival also featured food from some of Manayunk’s restaurants.
