Fifth Ave Fair Text

That's right folks, the fabulous fifth avenue fair is upon us again. The excitement commences on Sunday, May 17th and lasts from 11AM-7PM with the action stretching from Sterling Place to 12th Street.

As you stroll the avenue enjoying sausage and peppers, and funnel cake, be sure to visit with Kym Hampton, of the WNBA, and the 501st & Rebel Legions Star Wars Costume Volunteers. In addition, local artists, photographers, and craftspeople will display the products of their incredible talents between 3rd Street and St. Johns Place.

This year should be especially exciting with an excellent line-up of events, with live music and performances at Southpaw (125 5th Ave @ Sterling Pl.) and The Gate (321 5th Ave @ 3rd Street) from local artists and young musicians, and special performances by legendary a capella group The Persuasions. If you've never heard them before (and some of our younger readers might be scratching their heads, as this young writer did), you can hear samples of their smooth, sultry sounds here.

There is something for everyone and the action will be lively all day long, so be sure to round up family and friends, and bike, walk or run to Fifth Avenue this Sunday.
