The Sunset Park Business Improvement District said goodbye to summer and hello to fall with its annual Fifth Avenue Street Festival Sept. 26.

The festival, which was scrapped last year due to the pandemic, took place from 44th and 59th Street and included hundreds of vendors, dozens of stores, two children’s amusement zones and two performance stages.

Organizer Cathy Williams arranged each vending space, made sure everyone had the proper permits and encouraged merchants to participate.
