The annual festival brought thousands of people to this historic area of Milton.
Thousands of people filled the streets in Historic Crabpple for the Crossroads at Crabapple Antique and Art Festival on Saturday, Oct. 1. Parking spaces were filled all around the area, and traffic more closely resembled an evening rush hour than a sedate weekend afternoon. But with most of those motorists seemingly headed for the festival, much of it turned into pedestrian traffic. At least 100 vendors offered antiques ranging from household goods to large pieces of furniture, while artwork from jewelry to paintings were on display, and for sale.
