A section of Germantown Avenue in Chestnut Hill will be car-free on Sunday, Sept. 24, for the annual Fall for the Arts Festival.

Stroll the street to browse the work of more than 150 artists from across the country. Shoppers will find watercolors, etchings, photography, sculpture, pottery, wood crafts, jewelry and accessories.

In the "Makers Village," back for the third year, artists-to-be can get creative. All ages can take part in interactive activities or watch demonstrations.
