BROOKLYN - Vendors, shoppers and food shop owners took over the road on Atlantic Avenue Sunday for the 37th Annual Atlantic Antic Street Festival.
The festival, which draws at least one million people each year, attracts visitors with hundreds of booths featuring vendors and local businesses and all different varieties of food. Vendors say they always have to plan accordingly, with one saying she ran out of products the first year, not anticipating the crowds.
Local business owners say they love the festival, as it benefits them financially. A local chip shop owner says he does the sales on festival day and called it "a real shot in the arm" for his business.
