Thousands of people came out to peruse the stalls and enjoy the music at the Rock Make Street Festival today, on Treat Avenue between 17th and 18th streets. What began as a family-oriented event with children playing music onstage while others danced nearby has become a venue for adults who want to check out live music and local shopping.
