The 2015 Street Fair brought a sizable horde of patrons to Yellow Springs this past Saturday. All day, there were arts and crafts vendors lining the streets, music and beer, and plenty of food for everyone. It was unclear from an eye’s perspective alone whether or not there were more people than the summer’s event.
The weather was crisp, brisk, and very clear throughout the day; which gave festival attendees quite a lovely experience. Musical acts such as Ohio Brass & Electric, Elementree Livity Project , and Glostik Willy provided the day’s soundtrack at the Music & Beer Fest Lineup. Belly dancing troupe Egyptian Breeze and other acts entertained guests at the other end of town.
The food trucks provided succulent and delectable dishes to everyone who attended. The smells of cooked meats, sizzling onions, and fresh greens wafted along the autumn winds, making everyone’s mouth’s water. The general spirit of the event was happy and lighthearted.
The Street Fair is sponsored by Greene Memorial Hospital, Soin Medical Center, Antioch College, Wagner Subaru, USBank, WYSO, and the Dayton City Paper. It has been going on for quite some time and is an important tradition in our town. Most people from out of town are probably introduced to our village through the fair, and the flow of information and merchandise to outside consumers is too important to the economic health of the town. Here’s to many more years of festivities in the Springs.
