ARDMORE,OK-- Thousands of people will be crowding the streets of Ardmore this Friday night for the Taste of Ardmore, and about 25 vendors will have plenty of food to showcase.

Amy McKnight opened her cupcake shop 6 months ago and this year is her first year participating in the taste of Ardmore.

With more than 5 thousand people expected to show up to Friday's event, McKnight said she can handle it.

"We bake fresh cupcakes every day and we're just used to producing a lot so it shouldn't be a problem."

The Ardmore Main Street Authority has hosted the event in downtown Ardmore for several years now.

Authorities said about 25 different restaurants will be showcased and they're expecting over 5 thousand people to show up to this annual event.

"To top it all off we've got a great concert by the Josh Abbott band. It's a free concert! Besides food and music we're going to have fun things for the kids to do such as bounce houses. It's going to be a wonderful evening to spend in downtown with your family this Friday night," Said Ardmore authority Julie Patterson.

Casa Romo manager Daniel Romo isn't new to the taste of Ardmore. Romo's restaurant has been showcased in the event several times before and Romo said they're expecting a large crowd.

"As far as preparation goes, we have several local area restaurants that are going to participate. We'll have just as many as last year. We're waiting on a lot of last minute entries to come in so we really think it's going to be big," Romo said.
