Del Ray’s annual Art on the Avenue festival is returning this weekend and drivers are warned to keep clear of the area.
On Saturday (Oct. 5), Mount Vernon Avenue will be closed from 7 a.m.-9 p.m. between Bellefonte and Hume Avenues, according to a tweet from the Alexandria Police Department.
The free street festival is expected to feature over 300 artists, with a variety of musicians and food vendors. It runs from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
Over 50,000 visitors are expected, event organizers say. Children’s activities, like stuffing a scarecrow and painting a pumpkin, will also be part of the festivities.
