A part of San Bernardo was closed Sunday in an effort to revive business in West Laredo.
La Avenida San Bernardo, a local non-profit, held a festival full of vendors, bike riders, and music and out door cafes. The group feels by getting business in the area to interact with the community, the more consumers will be willing to come to the west side of Laredo.
The group says they are focusing on the properties between Chicago and Jefferson Street.
Sunday's event is just one of many more events
They plan on holding an evening street festival soon and Arte En La Avenida.
