A fair night for fun

Adams Square Street Fair, canceled last year due to streetscape construction, returns to a revitalized Adams Square.

Adams Hill resident Mickey Sabio, 28, said he noticed most of the same vendors and rides came out this year. He said the best part about the fair was the live music.

Three bands played Saturday night on a stage in front of a dry cleaners. A beer garden was in the fenced-off area next to the stage and nearby were the food booths. It was a good set-up for people to just relax and listen to music, Sabio said.

Sabio said he sees people in the community outside with their children or pets, hanging out, going to work or coming back and the fair is a great place to approach them and chat.


"We have a pretty tight-knit community," he said.

But the fair is important for the children as well because it is silly, wholesome fun that they can enjoy, he said.

"It keeps kids focused and in the right direction, out of the hands of bad influences," he said. "It kind of lets them know it's cool to be young."
