PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Restaurants on East Passyunk Avenue are gearing up for one of the biggest street festivals of the year in South Philly: Flavors on the Avenue.

On April 28 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., the East Passyunk Avenue Business Improvement District will hosts its annual festival, which Executive Director Adam Leiter said is a great way to explore one of the city's most popular and growing restaurant corridors.

"Flavors is all $3 to $6 bites from the restaurants," he explained. "Some of them may be samples of what they have on a regular basis. Some may be special dishes specific to Flavors, and we have over two dozen restaurants that are either going to be literally out in the street serving outside of their establishments or opening their windows up and serving through the windows or having grab-and-go options."

Leiter anticipates about 10,000 people to attend Flavors on the Avenue — one of two festivals on East Passyunk Avenue where the streets are shut down.

"We have a mile-long business corridor altogether," he noted, "but five of those blocks spanning from Broad Street all the way up to Dickinson will be shut for Flavors."

The closest subway stations are the Snyder or Tasker-Morris stops, and Leiter suggests the best strategy is to take public transportation.
