Most guitar players already have plenty of guitar picks, but on Thursday, they were looking for even more.

Dozens of local musicians lined East Avenue Thursday night, trying to be named "Best Busker" in the annual "Buskerfest". Spectators walked up and down the street, dropping picks into the buckets of their favorite performers. 

The winners were given various prizes.
