Downtown was shut down in Prattville on Saturday as ven­dors lined the streets for the 25th annual Prattville CityFest.
Everything from Alabama and Auburn apparel to home made paintings to purses, and even turtles, were available for families to purchase as they walked together on a sunny day.
The event brought a bal anced mix of different areas such as corporate tents along side do-it-yourself booths. And while some items probably weren't very interesting to chil dren, they had a kids' zone fea turing inflatable rides all to themselves.
Some attendees came with organizations such as the Pratt ville Autauga Humane Society or different area churches, like C Williams. She came with her grandson as the two enjoyed what she called "a nice day."
"I looked at all the vendors and then let him come play," Williams said.
If browsing the different shopping selections left anyone hungry, they only needed to visit the Creek Walk to enjoy corn dogs and Italian ice, among other food items. Some even kicked off their shoes to relax in the creek near down town.
Even some of the vendors stepped away from their boot hs to see what else CityFest had to offer. Mimi Young from Chelsea New York and Jan McDowell from Touch of New York in Prattville took some time late in the day to check out some new additions to the lineup.
"It's all about supporting the local CityFest," McDowell said.
Young said the crowd was steady all day, saying the fact that it was Mother's Day week end may have played a helping hand.
"The traffic's been better than the last couple of years," Young said. "It's been great, real upbeat."
