It features street performers, interactive activities, carnival games, food vendors, live music, an Olympic high dive performance, virtual reality swings, super slides, oh and a ferris wheel that’ll be casually chillin’ on Broad Street. It’s NBD. Street Fair lasts 11 am to 7 pm.

Get ready for a celebratory day full of food, drinks, and live performances.
