    Prosecutors are expected to read a transcript of the 2005 testimony, saving for the very end of their case Cosby's own words about using the 1970s party drug "the same as a person would say, 'Have a drink.'"

Moonfest 2017 is just around the corner.

The huge Halloween festival is celebrating its 25th year and is expected to draw in thousands of people to downtown West Palm Beach. Get ready for food trucks, costume contests and live music.

"It's basically a yearlong process. We've been working with sponsorships, vendors, getting all the street vendors organized -- the bands together," said Kristen Dagata, Moonfest coordinator. "We have less than a week left, so it's crunch time."

But in addition to Moonfest this Saturday, there are other events happening that same day so you’ll want to keep up with the road closures on and around Clematis Street.

Moonfest will start setting up stages, vendors and generators and decorations around starting at 6 a.m. on Saturday. Clematis will shut down at 7 a.m. that day but with other events happening in downtown, organizers have a lot to work around.

“We also have the Green Market down on the 100 block of Clematis Street. We have to be aware of the time schedules so we can’t start setting up there until 2pm," said Dagata.

There's also the Walk to End Alzheimer’s even happening in downtown Saturday morning.

"Some of the roads will be closed — not on Clematis, but on Sapodilla and Rosemary. That’s from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m., so we’ll have to work around that," added Dagata.

Keep in mind, you have to be 21 or older just to get through the gates of Moonfest. However, organizers are planning some family friendly events before 8 p.m. Stay tuned for more information later on in the week.

"We are trying to set up events earlier with a family trick or treat and an earlier costume contest where parents can bring their kids, but after 8 p.m., no kids!" said Dagata.
