CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Tens of thousands of people gathered in Cincinnati's downtown this past weekend spending millions of dollars. The All-Star Game and festivities
put the Queen City on an international stage, welcoming many from around the country.

Local businesses stayed busy and they aren't complaining about it.

"It was crazy. It was the busiest time we've ever seen since we've been here and it was fun too. It's great it's like a big party all day. I don't think words can really describe just how fun this weekend was,” said Tyler McCleary.

Tyler McCleary is the sales and marketing manager for Crave Restaurant. He says he thinks local business got a nice slice of the pie when it came to business.

"Absolutely, I would bet that everyone here had the best sales since they opened. I mean just the sheer volume of people out here,” said McCleary.

McCleary wouldn't mind other block party type events.

"What they have done down her has been great, they've made a tone of improvement but if we can have events that draws everybody from across the city sown here. I think it would be huge,” said McCleary.
