Midtown Street Fair will take over West Main next month

A new street fair next month will shut down West Main Street from the Sacagawea statue to Seventh Street on September 11, says Blue Moon Diner co-owner Laura Galgano.

Galgano said that she finalized plans with the city this morning for the fair, which will include a waitstaff olympics and a BBQ cookoff. There will, of course, be music: the tentative (and great) lineup includes Jim Waive and the Young Divorcees, Mister Baby, Pantherburn and the kid tested, mother approved We Are Star Children.

The Midtown Street Fair, as they’re calling it, is sponsored by the Midtown Business Association and will involve businesses restaurants along West Main extending to the 12th Street Taphouse. "I’ve never been so pleased with the city," she says.

 Van Halen. Live. ’84. "Dancing in the Street." ‘Nuff said.
