“We annually attract 50,000 people,” she said.

Speaking of the food, you gotta have a strategy.
“I feel like my eyes are often bigger than my stomach so if I just start eating, I don’t want to get to the end and find something I can’t fit into my tummy. So I want to check everything out before I commit,” said one women enjoying the festival.
Moskow says about 100 vendors are participating, and it takes a lot of work to get this festival together.MORE NEWS: Hundreds Rally For Abortion Rights In Philadelphia With Democratic Gov. Nominee Josh Shapiro, Planned Parenthood
