South Perry Street Fair

When: Sat., July 26, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. 2014

For 15 years, the South Perry Street Fair has been a summertime tradition of local food, music and fun. A couple of days before the neighborhood celebration, a bike, wagon and stroller decorating contest is planned at Thursday’s South Perry Farmers Market (July 24, from 3 to 5 pm). All decorated “wheels” are then encouraged to join in the parade on Saturday morning (10 am). Following the festival kickoff are the usual street fair events, including local art and crafts vendors, and a dunk tank for those daring divers. The fair also boasts a great lineup of local music throughout the day, including the Marshall McLean Band, The Camaros, Prairie War and more. Whip out that face paint, pack up the kids and head out for a day of South Perry pride.
