The Fourth Avenue Winter Street Fair opens tomorrow and runs through Sunday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. each day. The event takes place on Fourth Avenue between Ninth Street and University Boulevard.
The street fair includes more than 400 arts and crafts booths, more than 35 food vendors, street musicians, food, jugglers, street performers, and a hands-on art pavilion for kids. There also will be face painting, balloons, demonstrations, sidewalk entertainment, and other activities.
You can ride the Sun Link streetcar to the fair to avoid parking hassles, but please note there will be temporary route adjustments. The streetcar will operate on the east end of the route from the eastern terminus at Helen Street to University Boulevard and Third Avenue and back. On the western terminus, the streetcar will operate from Avenida del Convento, through downtown, to Fourth Avenue and Eighth Street and back. Sun Tran buses will be used to shuttle streetcar passengers from temporary stops at Fourth Avenue and Ninth Street, and University Boulevard and Third Avenue.
