PHOTOS: Flavors of the Avenue on East Passyunk

A thousand revelers packed the big-top tent at East Passyunk’s annual Flavors of the Avenue culinary festival on Sunday. The sold-out event featured over two dozen East Passyunk chefs, a street festival with live music and the April Showers Craft Show hosted by Crafty Balboa at the Singing Fountain. 

Entertainment for the day included local bands We Are Fauna and The Star Band, who played in the picnic area; and DJs Linz and Mars spun at the Singing Fountain. The stars of the afternoon, however, were the dishes. I heard people raving about Ippolito’s lobster roll, a stinging nettle vichyssoise from Will BYOB and Tre Scalini‘s slow-cooked honey-roast tripe dish, trippi in umido.
