Downtown businesses preparing for busy weekend

Reporter: Kara Kostanich

SunFest kicks off Wednesday, and businesses are gearing up for the extra cash the music fest brings in. But with the economy slow, are business owners worried?

Area restaurants tell us they've order extra food and scheduled additional staff to cover the weekend.

E.R. Bradley's say they'll be bringing in four additional refrigeration trucks to hold extra food and beverages.

At Bonanno Sandal Factory, we found them working on overdrive making sandals for SunFest. They say their booths will sport hundreds of chairs especially the "platinum palm sandal", a local favorite. "This is my biggest week of the year. SunFest really boosts my business," says Monica Bonanno. 

Kevin Cudlinski, E.R. Bradley's, says, "With the line-up this year, with Sheryl Crow a big name, I think it's going to be really busy down here, and the line-ups a lot better than it's been in year's past. So, I'm actually looking forward to it."
