Perfect weather for a perfect Street Fair

The spectacular fall weather on Saturday made for a very successful Street Fair filled with musical groups, vendors, street musicians, dancers, and more.

Included in the events: The Project Jericho Bucket Band from Springfield, directed by Ricky Kennerly, performed at the Jackson Lytle and Lewis Stage; later, the shanty group “Hardtackers” (comprised of YS resident Joe Cook and Brian Smith and John Schomburg of Columbus) entertained the crowd with maritime folk songs; villager Elizabeth Price danced and played percussion for The Piano Peddler, Eugene Beer; various street musicians added to the festival atmosphere; benches, curbs, stoops, and stairs made for makeshift eating areas all through downtown as fest-goers enjoyed the wide variety of food; the Coots Repertory Company (featuring Ron Siemer, Jerry Buck, and Walter Rhodes) performed Virgil Hervey’s 10-minute play (and recent 10-Minute Play Fest “Crowd Favorite”) “Parking Spaces” at the Corner Cone followed by Bettina Solas who played her mountain dulcimer.
