Fourth Avenue Winter Street Fair This Weekend

The Fourth Avenue Winter Street Fair takes place tomorrow through Sunday, Dec. 8-10, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The free fair brings together 300,000 people, more than 400 arts and crafts booths, more than 35 food vendors, two stages, street musicians, jugglers, carnival food, an art area for kids, face painting, balloons, and more.
