With trepidation, I dodged the cars parked on my street and walked to the Sunset Cliffs Street Fair on Saturday, Sept. 1, chaired by Richard Aguirre and organized by Megan Hubbard Carter.

What a “mind blower” it was. People – and dogs – all over; happy smiles on faces; no alcohol – so it was very mild. People stopped and talked to strangers; people manning the booths – and there were 100-plus – knowledgeable and having a good time.

There was quite a bit of controversy about this first time event; some wanted it; some didn’t, but the three people that I spoke to that were “on the fence” were pleased with the outcome. One merchant told me that she gave out more cards than she has given out since she has been in business. Others had drawings, raffles, and free samples.

The music was good; something for everyone, just not at the same time. Security was visible, but I did not detect any rowdiness anywhere on the block. A good time was had by all. One of the vendors told me that he is looking forward to next year’s street fair. If you didn’t go to this one, don’t miss the next one.

It was a very nice affair with many booths. I was surprised with all the people that came out on the wonderful day.
