Nice weather helped bolster the turnout, as festival-goers jammed Washington Square to listen to music. The surrounding streets were packed with shoppers perusing arts-and-crafts and food booths.

The fun continues Sunday with several events including the popular Blessing of Animals.

This is the festival's 54th year.
