CHARLESTON, W.VA. (WSAZ)-- Thousands brought their appetites with them to a family favorite FestivALL event Sunday; Taste-Of-ALL Charleston.

Chefs from local restaurants were there cooking up some menu favorites. Event organizers say it's a great way to showcase Charleston businesses.

Restaurants were hit hard financially during the water crisis and Sunday was a way to help boost their popularity again.

A new event at this years Taste-Of-ALL Charleston was the chef's cook-off.

"It actually was a branch-out of some of our chefs from last year. When we do a survey from all the restaurants about what we can do to improve, some of them said, 'why don't we do a chef off?' so that's what we threw together this year," Taste-Of-ALL Charleston Chair, Emily Wall, said.

In total, about 6,000 people were expected to walk through the doors at the Civic Center, Sunday. Organizers say that number is likely to be even higher though, as people tried to escape the heat and humidity.
