Street vendors plan protest

Posted: Updated:

Atlanta's street vendors are expected out in force this weekend for the Final Four, not peddling their goods, but protesting.

That's because the City of Atlanta has banned vendors from setting-up on public property. That includes the areas around the Georgia Dome, where basketball is taking place and Turner Field, home of the Atlanta Braves. The city attributes the ban to a December court decision.

Vendors called the ban unfair and said it was misinterpretation of the ruling.

They planned a 4 p.m. protest Saturday across the street from the Georgia Dome.
