WESTPORT — The eighth installment of the Slice of Saugatuck Festival is set to return this weekend.

On Saturday over four dozen of Saugatuck’s finest restaurants, shops and galleries will open their doors and invite the community to sample their offerings. The festival is scheduled to take place from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

As families crowd the streets of Saugatuck, police are asking drivers to be aware of heavy pedestrian traffic. Police said Railroad Place from Riverside Avenue to Franklin Street will be closed to vehicular traffic from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. to allow for the set up and break down of vendors’ booths and exhibitions.

While all other roads are open to vehicular traffic, police said motorists should expect heavy pedestrian traffic near Saugatuck Railroad station, Riverside Avenue and Saugatuck Avenue.

Pedestrians are reminder to utilize the crosswalks when crossing the roadways. The Saugatuck Railroad station lots will also be used to provide parking for the event.

“If traveling to the railroad station or destinations in the immediate vicinity, please drive carefully and be sure to allow extra time for any traffic delays resulting from this event,” police said.
