Tens of thousands of people flocked to Forest Hills last Sunday for the 13th annual Festival of the Arts.
The event, sponsored annually by the Forest Hills Chamber of Commerce, drew close to 60,000 people to Austin Street, where there were more than 300 arts and crafts exhibitors. To add to the fun, there were food vendors, merchant sidewalk sales, and free children’s entertainment at the day-long fete.
Chamber of Commerce President Leslie Brown said on her organization’s website that she and her members were thrilled to once again host the increasingly popular event.
“I like to think of our members as being part of a family working together to keep Forest Hills the great place it is for shopping, dining, being pampered and entertained,” Brown wrote.
