Local businesses are expecting a huge turnout, including Gypsy Uncorked, which held their grand opening during last year’s festival.
“We’re expecting about 5,000 people down here tomorrow evening and afternoon," Gypsy Uncorked owner Tagan Couch said. "We’re prepared, we’ve been cooking for the last 2 days to get ready for the massive crowd that’s going to show up.”
Make sure to wear green when you come downtown Saturday.
