    Despite large crowds on the Square on Saturday, sales at restaurants and bars seemed to have been less than half a typical Double Decker Arts Festival weekend.

            Double Decker: Crowds turn out

            SUNDAY UPDATE — The 15th Annual Double Decker Arts Festival drew a healthy crowd Saturday night and Sunday afternoon, despite having to be rescheduled due to Saturday’s morning storms and strong winds.
