Several venues for the annual FisherPoets Gathering in Astoria had to turn people away over the weekend as the popular event saw standing-room only crowds.

The event has steadily grown to include nearly a dozen locations for special events during the day and poetry readings, spoken word and live music performances in the evening. The event drew nearly a hundred poets, musicians and other performers this year.
