It’s once again time for the Yellow Springs Street Fair, a day-long festival that fills the streets of Yellow Springs with tens of thousands of folks enjoying a wonderful mix of vendors, food and performers. The date to remember is June 12 from 9 am to 5 pm.

Shopping in Yellow Springs is always a treat with great local shops but that is multiplied on Street Fair day when over 200 vendors come to sell their one of a kind arts, unique imported items and interesting hand-made crafts.

Food from around the world is featured at Street Fair. Sit and enjoy your food at the Jackson Lytle Lewis Food Tent where you can also enjoy entertainment throughout the day. Grace Adele and the Grand Band will perform all afternoon, with the Egyptian Breeze Belly Dancers performing at 12 and 2.

For a break from shopping, stop by the Music Festival at the Bryan Center on Dayton St. from noon to 7. While you’re listening to the music, enjoy a microbrew from the Beer Garden, featuring 8 delicious selections from Peach’s Grill, voted Dayton’s best beer bar.

I hope they actually enforce the ordinance about no pets at street fair.

I adore dogs and love to admire them but they really don't belong at an event like street fair. It's too crowded and I can't imagine it's a pleasant experience for the animals to be in the midst of all that chaos.

Why people insist on dragging their poor animals to an event like this is beyond my comprehension. Do your dog and everyone else a favor and leave them at home.
