WEB EXTRA- Sunday Walk-Through of Capital City Taste Fest

Jerk chicken, Candy Coated Fruit, Health and beauty products and so much more were featured at this year's event.

The goal of the event was to bring out the community and for local vendors to have an environment to showcase their products and services.

Donisha Brewer, the event manager for the Capital City Taste Fest touched on what it means for our surrounding neighborhoods.

“To be able to be a part of something that is truly building community, building a sense of ownership, I think that’s the biggest thing. Giving people hope, letting people know that just because you feel like this area may or may not be the best, we want to do something positive, we want people to feel really good about where they're from.”

The event took place Saturday and Sunday just past West Jolly Rd and South Martin Luther King Blvd.
