Fall For Greenville is open for its last day this year from noon until 7 p.m. Sunday.

The festivities kicked off in downtown Greenville Friday and continues throughout the weekend.

All day Thursday and Friday morning, crews were getting ready for the 3-day event and for the thousands of people who will flood the area. 

Greenville Police tell 7 On Your Side, they will have officers downtown to control the crowds and the traffic, and keep you safe.

Organizers expect 150 thousand people, and it's because of the crowds that people will notice a change this year. The event will extend down Main Street all the way to Augusta Street.

It's an expansion West End business owners like Jennifer Ramos of Emporium welcome.

"I think it'll be really big, because a lot of times, when it used to end at the park, so they didn't even know we were here," Ramos explained.

Josh Beeby, owner of The Trappe Door and Barley's, is a board member with Fall For Greenville.

"Crowds are really one of the biggest issues we face every year, which is a great problem to have, so just by spreading it out a little bit, gives you a little room to move," Beeby explained.

There are two park and ride services where you can park for free and avoid the crowds.

You can go to the parking garage at CU-ICAR and ride Greenlink for free to the downtown transit center, or you can park at County Square and hop on a free trolley service.
