“We shut down Walnut Street from Broad to 19th, we also go across across 18th Street from Locust to Sansom, and we fill the streets with wonderful food booths and great fashion opportunities, cooking demonstrations, music, family entertainment,” she tells KYW Newsradio.

Moskow says the cooking demonstrations will feature chefs from the Starr restaurants in Rittenhouse Square, and the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board will be handing out free wine samples.
