Street fair! Street fair! Street fair!

Photos by Steven 

In case you had forgotten! The first Street Fair in two years is now underway on Second Avenue...
EVG reader Terry Howell provided a quickie assessment: 
The Second Avenue Street Fair extends from Seventh Street to 11th Street, unless there's an afternoon shift later. Mainly the same traveling band of commercial sellers with stuff and tchotchkes (crystals, bonsai, baskets, bowls, rugs, jewelry, etc.) that clogged the former street fairs. If you're looking for new food experiences or any local vendors, you will be disappointed, as was I. I searched in vain for "The Pickle Guy." Sad, but it's a start. 
Yes! Welcome back... and maybe THIS will be the year you buy the "Scarface" poster you've been eyeing for the past 15 years...

Now on lower 2nd Avenue: The Lower 2nd Avenue Summer Festival

The Lower Second Avenue Summer Festival is underway... until 6 p.m. on Second Avenue between 14th Street and Ninth Street.

EVG Lower Second Avenue Summer Festival correspondent Steven notes a fairly generic assemblage of street festival vendors and food...

Today, on 3rd Avenue, a street festival

Indeed. From 14th Street to Sixth Street.

At this hour, belts were the only thing available for purchase...

Other vendors were still setting up the tents and putting together the mannequins...

... and firing up the deep fryers...

The Cooper Square Committee is today's street festival (avenue festival?) host.

And as far as street festivals go, this is one of the better ones...

A 2nd Avenue Street fair tomorrow

In case you didn't see the posted No Parking signs, um, posted along Second Avenue this week... tomorrow (Saturday!) marks one of the better street festivals around... sponsored by the Middle Collegiate Church.

Per their website:

Join us for our annual Second Avenue Street Fair from 12-5pm! Children and families can enjoy activities like a bounce-house, tie-dye t-shirt making, sidewalk chalk, bubble station, art projects, and more! From 1-5pm, hear live music on the Middle Church stage featuring celebrated East Village musicians, including the Jerriese Johnson Gospel Choir and Village Chorus for Children & Youth. Voter registration and election information will also be available on our block. It’s an all-day party with Middle Church, filled with art, justice, and music — you won’t want to miss it!
