Third Avenue shut down on Saturday for vendors, classic cars, and chalk art drawing throngs of people to Sturgeon Bay. For Sonny's Italian Kitchen, that meant setting up a temporary booth on the other side of the canal from its permanent location to take advantage. The Brick Lot Pub and Grill is located at Third and Jefferson, adjacent to where John Soukup was etching a chalk mural. The professional artist from Cedar Rapids, Iowa added something new to the Brick Lot experience. Owner Wendi Carter says Harvest Fest is a great help to her business.
Fall weekends normally present high traffic for the Brick Lot. Carter says the extra touches of Harvest Fest help turn it into one of the biggest days of the season.
